Another week, another soft launch. From the moment you walk in to Cha Chaan Teng in Holborn you can feel the touch of retro dining in Hong Kong with the colourful lighting, marble top booths and urban art. Overall there was a good vegetarian selection including savoury pancakes, an omelette, a large selection of sides and bao buns. I liked the contemporary vibe, but I wouldn’t say I was blown away by the food and eager to come back. The booking process also didn’t set the best impression before because the Cha Chaan Teng reservation team were not great with responding to emails.
