30 Jun Meet Master Man: Sai Ying Pun egg rolls baker 萬先生：蛋卷師傅
MADE IN SYP
This story is part of a series of stories dedicated to the Spirit of Craftsmanship in Sai Ying Pun. We discovered SYP through the lens of locals. We visited 16 local craftsmen, to learn about their trade, their tools, their stories. See what they create; learn what they love and feel their passion. How about some Sai Ying Pun Egg Rolls?
“We bake our egg rolls fresh every day, here at the back of the shop”
Sweet flaky egg rolls are a quintessential Hong Kong treat 不可錯過的香港傳統小食！
ON A STEEP SLOPE
‘Egg rolls on the slope’ is how many locals still know this small Sai Ying Pun bakery. The name dates back to the pre-escalator days when the steep slope was a more of a hard-to-get-to place. With the construction of the MTR and escalator, Arona was among the shops that moved into the new market. Maybe it was because people couldn’t smell the rolls anymore, but business went bad and within 3 months Arona was ‘back on the street’ this time at Third Street.
This tiny 50-year-old bakery churns out home-made cakes, biscuits, and their famous egg rolls. Freshly baked, every day and the SYP locals love it. “To find Chi Loy Heung, just follow the aroma’’ says Ms. Kwan, a loyal customer.

HONG KONG EGG ROLLS
It’s the quintessential Hong Kong treat egg rolls that make people come back to this small 50-year-old popular bakery. To make the sweet flaky biscuits Mr. Man mixes butter, flour, eggs and sugar and adds a hint of vanilla. The mixture is spread onto an old-fashioned iron steel press, baked until golden crisp and then rolled around an iron stick. The secret is to make sure the press has the right temperature so the dough spreads easily but doesn’t burn. “We are famous for our eggrolls. We even created a special tin container, so they can stay fresh.” says Mr. Man.
