同心泰國雜貨店

藝術家:麥嘉欣

九龍城有不少泰國人聚居,在區內開設餐館、雜貨店、售賣泰國貨,每年四月泰國新年,還會舉行潑水節,構成「小泰國」的風俗面貌。老闆謝女士是泰國華僑,1981年來港定居,曾跟隨父親在大排檔工作,至2000年開設同心售賣泰式雜貨,其後開設泰國菜館。

藝術家麥嘉欣以象徵泰國的大象,融合標誌九龍城密集低矮的樓房,構成潑水節的熱鬧景象。謝女士最講究泰式香料的質素,因此畫中飛躍半空的香料,香茅、南薑和辣椒,代表同心的貨品均由泰國空運到港。同心泰國菜館亦會製作泰式海鮮辣椒醬、咖哩及甜品於雜貨店售賣。

Wong Ming Kee is a family-run noodle and congee shop famous for its “three treasures” – cuttlefish balls, pork balls and sliced cuttlefish. Founded in the 1950s by Mr Wong, a Chiu Chow native from Puning in Guangdong, the business was initially a simpledai pai dong” (open-air food stall). Later, Mr Wong moved his stall and set up a shop at the current location in Kai Tak Road. When Kai Tak Airport was still in operation, Wong Ming Kee was popular with flight attendants and airport staff as well as local residents. The shutter artwork portrays Mr Wong making one of his “treasures” – cuttlefish balls – against a backdrop of Kowloon City, reflecting how the shop has continued to exist despite the changes in the area over the years. The shop is currently managed by Mr Wong’s son and daughter, who preserve their father’s legacy by continuing to serve food that is made fresh every day at a family-owned factory.
