To mark 110 years since the first Chinese restaurant arrived in London, online food ordering platform hungryhouse.co.uk is celebrating the classic cuisine by offering a 10p Throwback Takeaway menu, a price similar to what an Edwardian Londoner would have paid in 1907. The menu will feature a special selection of Chinese dishes that the nation still goes chopstick crazy over, a century after it first delighted Brits’ taste buds.

On Thursday 8th June, hungryhouse is inviting its customers to visit Mr Chan’s in Clerkenwell and collect a TBT (throwback takeaway) Chinese for 10p. From Chop Suey, an old favourite made with bean sprouts in sweet & sour sauce to Chicken and Cashew Nuts in Yellow Bean Sauce, each dish on the menu is available to order with the option of Chicken, Beef or Tofu and can be served with plain rice or egg fried rice.

In 1907, Chung Koon, formerly a cook on the Red Funnel Line ferry, landed in London and launched the first ever-Chinese Restaurant, Maxim’s. Based in Soho, the restaurant offered what was considered experimental dishes such as authentic Cantonese sweet-and-sour pork.

Sonny Hong, owner of Mr Chan’s takeaway in Clerkenwell, London said: “Chinese food has long been a familiar part of UK’s takeaway culture, and classic dishes such as Chop Suey still ‘woks’ our customers hearts; proving our tastes haven’t really changed through the years!”

Alice Mrongovius, CEO of hungryhouse, said: “At hungryhouse, we don’t want to forget the classics and what better way to celebrate Britain’s love affair for Chinese food than by offering Londoner’s a taste of Chinese favourites for early 20th century prices.”

The limited edition hungryhouse Throwback Takeaway menu will be available exclusively in partnership with one of London’s Most Loved Takeaways, Mr Chan’s in Clerkenwell. The service will be available on Thursday 8th of June 2017 between 12-2.30pm, via collection only, whilst stocks last. Customers are required to order and pay on arrival.

On Thursday 2nd March, Mathew Carver will be opening The Cheese Bar’s takeaway hatch as a sneak peak before opening the doors to their first permanent restaurant. To mark the occasion  they will be teaming up with local Camden charities for a sandwich amnesty offering Londoners a chance to upgrade their lunch.

From 12pm and for one day only, hungry Londoners can head to the takeaway hatch to upgrade their shop-bought, pre-made sandwich for one of founder Mathew’s signature grilled cheese sandwiches. At the end of the day, the charities will be on hand to collect the donated sandwiches, which their teams of willing volunteers will distribute to soup and street kitchens across the Camden area.

After travelling the length and breadth of the UK serving grilled cheese sandwiches from our trucks ‘Alfie’ and “Audrey”, we’re so excited to be taking up residence in Camden Market,” said Mathew Carver, Founder of The Cheese Bar. “We are proud to be working with the local community and to help out those less fortunate; upgrade your lunch whilst helping others out, what’s not to love…

Following the sandwich amnesty, Mathew will be previewing selected dishes from the Cheese Bar menu at the take away hatch between the 4th March and the 22nd of March, ahead of the grand opening on the 23rd. The menu will feature signature classics from The Cheese Truck days including a festival favourite Cropwell Bishop Stilton and the Bacon & Pear Chutney sandwich alongside new additions including a Berkswell Saganaki and truffled Baron Bigod.

Please note, to claim the sandwich upgrade, on the day all pre-bought sandwiches must have at least 1 day left before their expiry date and must be pre-packaged and sealed.

Zing Zing are always on our list come Easter time for their Cadbury Creme Egg wontons but this year they've come out with Christmas Dinner Wontons - we're not sure which win as both are amazing.

If you want a little taste of Christmas crossed with a bit of Chinese, before Christmas is truly upon us then you need to get yourself ordering some. Filled with a Christmas Dinner style sausage meat stuffing and a cranberry sauce dip the wontons are a brilliant little taste of the festive season.

Zing Zing also have melted Lindor wontons at the moment and you can grab some on your order free with the code LINDOMG. These are equally wonderful though be careful eating them, they are fully melted in there. 10160149

So - if you're not feeling like you've started to overdo it on the festive foods yet these need to be in your firing line.
