Good morning, Tsim Sha Tsui (4)

At this Cha Chaan Ting (茶餐廳), you can get an amazing variety of food. Surely you can get the usual tea, coffee, toast, instant noodles with fried eggs and luncheon meat, fried rice, fried noodles, cheap steaks, ... Also Cantonese dim sum, Shanghainese dim sum, Chiu Chow style food, ... And incredibly, steamed garoupas, red crabs, and even foot-long mantis shrimps. It is a real one-stop super smorgesbord. Even by the standards of 茶餐廳s, it is extreme. Perhaps this is a trend setter for 茶餐廳s?

One the other hand, some people are very specific about their food. What to eat, and how to prepare it. This is a butcher who sells halal meat for Muslims. No pork. Just beef, mutton and chickens. No blood. Perhaps it is too early, there are not too many shoppers yet.
