不日介绍:港仔的巷弄秘店50+:香港老味道/ Coming Soon: The Old Taste Of Hong Kong: A Hong Kong Local's Introduction of 50+ Specialty Food Shops


在两个月前买的书籍,却等到有机会在这个时候阅读,而且是越读越觉得有味,越来越饿!

我可以肯定,这是我读台湾作家栗子的《平民风在地味-我的香港私路线》之后,另外一本让我想买第二本来收藏的香港书籍。

也对,不知道何年何月,我们所熟悉的食物和老字号,因为敌不过高涨的租金而结束营业,顺带把吃的文化也让它消失。

我蛮期待写这本书籍的书评。

I am basically salivate whenever I flip the pages of this book The Old Taste Of Hong Kong

Even though it was purchased 2 months ago and I just started reading it, the way how the author, Ng Kar Fai, introduces the 50+ food shops that he went reminds me of the same experience, I had with another book written by a Taiwanese, Local Taste in a Shoestring Budget. It  is another "verbally  titillating"  experience and I mean it in a nice manner. 

We will never know when will the next Hong Kong food shop to roll down its shutters due to the increasing rent. Such books like these document the tales of a food culture which is soon disappearing. 

And I am filled with anticipation to write the book review. 

Stay tuned.
