Meet Hang Far Low, Chop Suey Cafe and Other 1950s Chinatown Relics

Chinatown today (image via Wikimedia Commons/Toffel)
Buzzfeed has gathered a treasure trove of photos from San Francisco's Chinatown in the 1950s. The site presents the adventure with an appropriate disclaimer: "Prepare to be transported." Among the more intriguing images are the photos that show food action and Americanized names for Chinese restaurants that now feel borderline racist when refracted through the lens of time. Would a spot called Chop Suey Cafe or a banquet hall called Hang Far Low fly in the neighborhood today?

  1. Are you offended by Chinese names? How are they even remotely racist in any time period?
