"Cha Chaan Tengs, translated directly as ‘tea restaurants’, are Hong Kong-style cafés that are an essential part of the city’s culture. Cha Chaan Tengs sprang up in the 1950s as an affordable alternative to high class western restaurants. They serve an eclectic blend of Western and Chinese cuisines, with unique staples such as milk tea, egg tart and Hong Kong-style French toast... Their popularity increased over time, and soon became favored hangouts for communities throughout the city. Today their modestly decorated interiors are instantly recognisable. The mosaic walls tiles, booth-style tables and highly efficient staff bring customers back to a simpler time. Orders are taken using unique jargons and shorthands to suit the city's fast-paced lifestyle, and customers often have to share tables with strangers during peak hours. All these idiosyncrasies blend together to form a unique dining culture to Hong Kong and its people. Cha Chaan Tengs serve as a symbol of Hong Kong's unique history and heritage, and this poster is a celebration of that very spirit."
