Cha Chaan Tengs: Hong Kong’s Retro Cafes (24/31)

Whether you’re looking for a fulfilling breakfast, an evening meal or an afternoon pick-me-up; in Hong Kong, a quick food fix is never more than a few blocks away. Cha Chaan Teng’s traditional Hong Kong-style cafes are open from early in the morning to late at night, and are perfect for filling and cheap meals like sandwiches, stir-fries and Hong Kong ice tea. They’ve often been around for decades and provide a look into the Hong Kong before its shimmering  skyscrapers were built; Mido Cafe in Yau Ma Tei is particularly charming.
