蘇記茶餐廳

藝術家:Uncle

踏進蘇記,你會誤以為自己走進一間照片展覽館,因為牆上盡是攝影發燒友老闆陳炯康遊歷世界的攝影作品!蘇記在1953年由茶檔起家,1998年搬到現址。陳老闆自幼幫父親打理生意,憶述當時鴨脷洲船廠繁盛,下午茶時段工人會蜂湧至蘇記吃西餅,高峰時一天需製作上一千件西餅。

藝術家Uncle知道陳老闆喜歡攝影,特別以一卷35mm菲林作為背景,拉開三格底片顯示蘇記的特色,最右方是1953年茶檔的外貌。中間是馳名的拿破崙西餅,製作過程雖然繁複,但深受客人愛戴。最左方可見當時是用炭爐煲茶,餅櫃放置了多士,是典型茶檔的格局。

So Kee Cha Chaang Teng
Artist: Uncle

Mr Chan, the owner of So Kee “cha chaang teng” is also an avid travel photographer. Combining business and pleasure, he has decorated the walls of his Hong Kong style tea house with his own photographic works. So Kee was established in 1953 by Mr Chan’s father. At that time it was a simple tea stall serving only breakfast and lunch. In 1998 the business expanded and moved to its current location. Mr Chan began helping out at So Kee as a young boy. In those days there were still a number of shipyards operating in Ap Lei Chau, and workers would come to So Kee for their tea break to enjoy Western-style cakes and pastries before heading back to work. At its peak, So Kee produced more than 1,000 pastries a day! The shutter artwork, presented as a roll of old photographic film to reflect Mr Chan’s passion for photography, shows So Kee’s history in three scenes. The image on the right shows So Kee in the early days. In the centre, there is a cup of Hong Kong-style milk tea and a slice of mille-feuille, the best selling pastry at So Kee in the past. On the left, the image shows So Kee’s serving counter and a cabinet full of buns.
