Hong Kong’s oldest restaurant — it’s apparently best known for its snake dishes (!) — will temporarily operate in Bangkok for two days. 

Next month, Hong Kong’s Ser Wong Fun, which has been operating for 125 years, will travel to our city and post up inside the fine dining restaurant Paste Bangkok, the contemporary Thai restaurant that was awarded a Michelin star back in 2018.

The two-day pop-up will feature an array of signature dishes that combine the two cuisines — Paste Bangkok’s modern Thai flavors and Ser Wong Fun’s Cantonese culinary traditions.

The full-course meal, priced at THB3,800 per person, will serve recipes from both Paste Bangkok and Ser Wong Fun — and there are so many to look forward to, from pen shell with chili and herbal cream, Chinese double-boiled soups, flash-fried lobster, a Northern Shan version of Hang Lay curry, Hakka yam steamed with pork belly, and many more. 

For those who aren’t familiar with Ser Wong Fun, it’s billed as the longest-standing Hong Kong restaurant. It first opened in 1895 and is currently run by the fourth generation of the founding family. The restaurant specializes in serving home-cured Chinese sausages and sea snake soup.

The pop-up event will run for two days — September 27 and September 28 — at Paste Bangkok. Advanced bookings are compulsory.

Paste Bangkok is located on the third floor of Gaysorn Village shopping center. The nearest public transportation stop is BTS Chit Lom.
