Chinese: Cha Chan Tang

January 23, 2012 By: Serena

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone!  Unfortunately, I will be working late tonight, but I got to spend New Year’s celebration with my family yesterday! In honor of the holiday, today I’m posting about Chan Chan Tang, in Chinatown.  Cha Chan Tang always places a smile on my face for several reasons.  One is the bottle milk tea that tastes not only richly luxurious but has the cutest presentation – just take a look at that first photo!  The other reason is that it was one of my friend Annie’s faves before she moved to Shanghai (check out her expat adventures on her blog!).

Cha Chan Tang means “tea restaurant,” and I recently ordered an inexpensive noodle dinner to supplement my beverage.  I ordered the ramen with fried egg and hot dog:

This piping hot, simple dish was very budget-conscious, and while it wasn’t the fanciest food in the world it was delicious and filling!  Add my milk tea to that and I had a perfect weeknight meal.

Cha Chan Tang is quite crowded on both weeknights and weekends, but if you’re in the area I’d definitely recommend popping in to try the bottle milk tea.  You won’t regret it!

Go for the milk tea, stay for the cheap dinner.
