Yee Heung Tofu Shop
Artist: Smile Maker
Yee Heung Tofu Shop is situated at the edge of Kowloon City Market, and has been managed by the Chan siblings, Chan Yu Sun and Chan Choy Fung, since the 1960s. The small, old-style eatery is famous for its silky tofu, soy milk and sweet tofu pudding, freshly made every day by Chan Yu Sun. The shop also serves street food snacks, like agar agar jelly, grass jelly and fried vegetables stuffed with minced meat and fish known as “three treasures”, as well as hot pot ingredients like tofu puffs, tofu skin and tofu rolls. The shutter artwork shows Chan Choy Fung holding a bottle of soy milk and Chan Yu Sun holding a block of tofu shaped to resemble the old Kowloon Walled City. The image reflects the shop’s legacy in the neighbourhood, and paints a perfect portrait of the Chan siblings’ teamwork, showing Chan Lui Sun’s focus on tofu production and Chan Choy Fung’s youthful energy for running the shop.
