Customers are able to enjoy affordable dim sum offerings such as siew mai and beancurd skin rolls for S$3.50, egg tarts (S$1.80 per tart), and chicken puffs at S$2.20. Main dishes such as hor fun and assam laksa are also available for S$5.50.
Popular local actor Mark Lee was the one responsible for bringing Nam Heong Ipoh to Singapore. He shared with 8days.sg that Nam Heong had asked if he was interested in bringing their brand to Singapore and he agreed. Currently, there are no plans to expand the Nam Heong brand yet.
