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?

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.  

斜路上的蛋卷舖
老街坊會把齒來香蛋卷形容為「斜路上那間蛋卷舖」,因為52年前開舖時,它正落戶正街斜路上。後來政府興建行人電梯,齒來香遷到街市裡面,但生意不如前,短短三個月後便搬到第三街現址。

「總能靠著股蛋香來引路。」齒來香出品全部由師傅在店內即場製造 ,真材實料,沒添加成分。

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.   

香港製造
齒來香的人手製蛋卷令它50多年來一直如此受歡迎。先將牛油、麵粉、雞蛋、糖、以及少許雲呢拿混合成漿狀,萬師傅再將蛋漿放到舊式的蛋卷機,烤至剛好再把蛋卷用鐵條捲好。秘訣在於掌握溫度,令蛋卷金黃鬆脆卻不烤焦,相當考功夫!萬師傅說:「我們的蛋卷很受歡迎,所以也印製了自家蛋卷罐,保持新鮮 。」
