The Chinese Food T-shirts You Never Knew You Needed

Do you like Chinese food? I mean, do you REALLY like Chinese food? Like, as a matter of pride? Then these badass, delicious-looking shirts from AYCE are for you. I am talking chicken feet, sausage buns, gai lan, curry fish balls… the good stuff.

Prominently and proudly featured on a white tee.

Created by friends Alex Wong, Jonathan Ng and Jamie Fung, these shirts are a celebration of food, culture and community.

Alex says they were intentional about which dishes to highlight, specifically picking items that were close to their hearts, but might be considered more “offbeat” to someone unfamiliar with Chinese cuisine.

“A lot of western culture tends to cherry pick what they deem worthy when it comes to food items from other culture, whether it be Chinese or something else,” Alex says. “These are food items that we feel are relevant to our culture that have either been rejected or not accepted yet. They’re very much ours and relevant to us.”

“These dishes can inspire shared memories and experiences for a lot of different people, and the shirts are sort of like head nod or a secret handshake”

And what a delicious secret handshake. I’M SOLD!!

The shirts are now available exclusively at the AYCE online store. Half of all proceeds from shirt sales will benefit the Museum of Chinese in America in New York City.

And since Chinese New Year is just around the corner, if you buy the entire thing, you’ll get “Tray of Togetherness” bonus tee for free.
