Cha Chaan Teng 茶餐廳

Cha Chaan Teng means Tea Meal Restaurant (茶餐廳). It is well known for it’s cheap menu and fast pace environment. It is perfect for people who work because you have minimal time to eat lunch. Most of the Cha Chaan Teng do deliveries now and they normally have an afternoon tea set menu which is cheaper. This type of restaurant is the mixture or fusion of western and yue food. Since British Colonized Hong Kong, the British brought western food over and these Cha Chaan Teng started to come out and became fairly popular.


Nowadays, these places are the best for a morning breakfast or afternoon tea for me. A must try at these Cha Chaan Teng is the signature Hong Kong milk tea and french toast. The french toast is not like any ordinary french toast it is deep fried and stuffed with peanut butter and butter. I ask them to put condense milk it is sometimes to make it the perfect snack.
