The son of Hong Kong's 'king of melon seeds' keeps the family name alive while sticking to his roots

from Post Magazine

In 1949, Luk Kam-lee migrated from China’s Zhejiang province to Hong Kong in search of a better life. In the years after his arrival, he sold roasted melon seeds and five-spiced beans from a hawker cart parked outside Tsuen Wan’s Grand Theatre, later establishing Shanghai Luk Kam Kee grocery shop, which opened in two locations before settling on Chuen Lung Street, in about 1980. Luk continued to sell seeds and beans, as well as pastries and dried fruit. Custom­ers at the shop were allowed to taste before buying, the floor was frequently littered with broken shells and the store was regu­lar­ly packed, especially in the run-up to Lunar New Year, when queues to enter would form in the street. more
