第十站/ 齒來香蛋卷

Tenth Station/ Arona Egg Roll Cake Shop

開業歷史/ 1980年代

業務/ 中式甜點

地址/ 第三街66號地下

走到第三街,總會不其然被濃濃的蛋香味吸引著,那就是開業達三十年的齒來香蛋卷。這個本區老招牌在正街牌檔起家,由孟老闆的父親開創,2003年正街重建時曾短暫遷入正街街市,最後因人流的考慮而搬至現址舖位。

店舖猶如變形後的牌檔,前舖撥作零售用途,後有由孟氏夫婦一手打點的工場,從本地山寨廠購入的一雙特製蛋卷機貌似爵士鼓,由孟生孟太彼此跟著節奏、手腳並用地壓捲出不同口味的蛋卷和鳳凰卷。孟氏從本區購入原材料,由干諾道西的入口批發商供應麵粉,在西區副食品批發市場買入雞蛋,入貨量可隨當日市面情況決定,確保原材料新鮮優質。

齒來香遵從傳統做法,同時亦革新包裝迎合市場需求,例如其搶眼醒目的紅色鐵罐禮盒,每逢大時節前夕便成為送禮首選,店舖門庭若市,非常熱鬧。

 

Opened/ 1980s

Business/ Chinese Pastries

Address/ Ground Floor, 66 Third Street

One is always attracted by a good smell when walking into Third Street− that, of course, is from Arona Egg Roll Cake Shop, that has been opened for thirty years.  This locally famous brand was first opened in stall by Mr. Mang’s father on Centre Street before it moved to the Central Street Market in 2003, when Centre street was being rebuilt.  It later moved to its current address on Third Street as this was a busier part of Sai Ying Pun.

The shop is rather like a transformed stall.  The front end of the shop is a retail store, while the back end is a workshop run by Mr. and Mrs. Mang.  The couple have a machine specially manufactured for the making of eggrolls, which they bought at a local factory.  The machine looks like a drum set, and Mr. and Mrs. Mang play the “drum” rhythmically with their hands and feet – pressing, rolling and making eggrolls and Phoenix Rolls with different flavours.  The couple source ingredients locally. For instance, the flour comes from a wholesaler on Connaught Road West, and the eggs are from the Western Wholesale Food Market.  As a way to ensure that the ingredients are always fresh and of good quality, the amount of ingredients is purchased according to the demand at different times.

The couple follow the traditional eggroll recipe, and at the same time innovate their products’ package design to meet market demands.  For example, the shop’s sharp and eye-catching red metal gift boxes are the top gift choices during festive seasons, during which the shop is always crowded with customers.
