Love takeaway but too broke to order it? This Thursday Hungry House is celebrating 110 years since the first Chinese restaurant arrived in our fair city by offering a special Chinese takeaway menu for 10p – roughly the price an Edwardian Londoner would have paid in 1907.
Available exclusively at Clerkenwell Chinese takeaway Mr Chan’s over lunchtime, the ‘throwback takeaway’ menu features six 10p dishes – including chop suey, Chinese mushrooms and ginger and spring onion – all served with rice and your choice of chicken, beef or tofu. Sounds amazing. We’re definitely not packing lunch.
The 10p Throwback Takeaway Lunch special is available from 12-2.30pm at Mr Chan’s, 21 Clerkenwell Rd, EC1M 5RD.
Can’t wait? Check out our round-up of the best Chinese restaurants in London.
