The Vintage HK Fusion Food You May Not Be Interested

First impression

When you see this, what do you think about this breakfast set?

The “Breakfast A”

This is a breakfast set that you can get from “Tea Restaurant”, 100% Hong Kong style.

More than 50 years ago, Hong Kong was still a British colony. The economy was starting to go up. Some Hong Kongers were making more money and they were looking for a better lifestyle, such as western food. However those “authentic” western food from hotels were still too expensive for them to afford. Therefore “tea restaurants” began to provide some “western cuisine” at a budget price. This “macaroni soup with ham” breakfast set was one of the earliest “western food” available at that time. Look at what you’ll get:

Do they look Western to you?

Their presentation is definitely not in western style, but take a close look at them:

Toast with fried eggs

Macaroni with ham

Milk tea

These names are very European, aren’t they?
