Every autumn, Mrs. Chan busts out her mobile cart fitted with a giant gas-powered wok, hand-roasting chestnuts and sweet potatoes at the Mong Kok Flower Market. Year after year, the now 70-year-old Mrs. Chan has been carrying on this beloved winter local tradition, a tradition that is at risk of vanishing within this generation as itinerant hawker licenses are no longer transferable or issued by the government.


「黑沙糖炒栗子、糖心煨蕃薯、鹽焗鵪鶉蛋、生炒花生,都是香港人熟悉的寒冬街頭美食。踏入七旬的陳太,在旺角花墟這角落營營役役幾十載,堅持保留本土小販風味。可惜隨着政府停止發牌、牌照不得繼承或轉讓,街頭炒栗子檔終會淪為昔日的集體回憶。」
