and live on Freeview channel 276
My Home Cafe at 10, Gage Street, Lancaster, classes itself as a ‘quintessential Hong Kong & Taiwan style café in Lancaster’.
Owner Zeno Chow said: “I love to cook and so opening a café is a rare and commendable platform for me to introduce the authentic Hong Kong and Taiwanese cultures to the local community, which is part of my family's new home.
"We serve up those quintessential foods and drinks to our locals, and it's the most straightforward and effective way to build a good future, not only for my family, but for the community as well.
“Several factors led to the decision to bring my family to the UK; I had already spent some time in the UK during my adolescence and early twenties and I enjoyed the culture and the way of life here.
“I attended college and university and I had made a lot of friends and ultimately, I would like my children to experience the same opportunities and joys that I did.
“I want to provide a better education and learning opportunities for my children, to have a better living and working environment and to be able to live in a country that has freedom of speech and thinking.”
