Before the age of supermarkets, family-run rice shops were once the only way to buy the staple grain in Hong Kong. Like his father before him, Wong Tak-Kam creates custom rice blends with various textures for his customers. At age 77, he continues to deliver orders in person by bicycle. Although the introduction of prepackaged rice and modern-day eating habits have all but decimated a once-thriving trade, the human touch of a traditional rice shop shall never be replaced.

 

「米一直是香港人的主要食糧,六、七十年代,每家每戶都會到米舖糴米。「成興泰糧食」1965年在石硤尾徙置區開業,除售賣糧油雜貨外,更會按照客人喜好提供溝米服務。時至今日,老闆德叔依舊踏著單車親自上門送貨。隨著超市的興起,真空包裝白米大行其道,加上香港人的飲食習慣與消費模式大大改變,傳統米行逐漸式微。縱使「米舖多過銀行」的年代早已沒落,但傳統米舖濃濃的人情味,卻永不褪色。」
