Shed and Splendid Restaurants come together creating a brand new restaurant offer going by the name Cha Chaan Teng. The new venture occupies over 300sqm and is located in the basement of Club Quarters Hotel in Holborn, London.
The concept is inspired by the infamous Cha Chaan Teng culture of post war Hong Kong. With increased urbanization and an influx of western expats, Hong Kong saw a succession of cafes spring up providing locals with access to ‘western food’ otherwise only served in expensive hotel restaurants.
The original ChaChaanTeng cafes were fast paced establishments serving an eclectic and sometimes unlikely mix of ‘East meets West’ food. Splendid’s Cha Chaan Teng can be seen as the London reincarnation taking the concept full circle; a British interpretation of an Eastern reinterpretation of the Western cuisine. Confused? That’s all part of the charm and a theme that runs through the design, graphics, artworks, cocktails and food.
