menu from restaurant in Shenzhen serving regional cuisines from across China

Labels and date

Graphic designer Huang Yang thinks the regional diversity of Shenzhen’s population make up is best reflected in the city’s culinary offerings. As commented on elsewhere in the exhibition, a large portion of Shenzhen’s workforce moved here from other parts of China. With few family ties, many eat out on a daily basis. Nearly every Chinese restaurant, regardless of their advertised regional specialism, serves some dishes from Hunan and Sichuan, the homes of a significant portion of Shenzhen’s migrant residents.

Restaurant menus and table accessories
The menus and accessories collected in various areas of Shenzhen show how restaurants adapt – in their dishes options and sometimes even with visual design elements – to give migrant residents a taste
of home. [2013]
