"Early Hong Kong Eateries: Photographs from the Collection of Mr. Cheng Po Hung"
2003-03-26 until 2003-06-09
University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong
Pokfulam, , HK Hong Kong

The eateries in Hong Kong have a history of over a hundred years. People could enjoy a great variety of food at teahouses, restaurants, cafés and even dai pai dong (food stalls on the street) throughout Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. Each one had its specialities to cater for different tastes and different people. Before the 1960s, there were already many restaurants serving western and Chinese provincial cuisines. Their rise and fall reflect the development of the city and also changes in eating culture.

The exhibition features over one hundred photographs of old Hong Kong, most of which are from the collection of Mr. Cheng Po Hung, a renowned expert on Hong Kong history. Supplemented with documents and artefacts related to culinary culture in Hong Kong from the late 19th century to the 1970s, viewers can have a better understanding of the diversity and range of early Hong Kong eateries, refreshing their memories of delicious cuisines. The Museum will publish a fully-illustrated book, in both Chinese and English, written by Mr. Cheng Po Hung for this exhibition.
