Mong Kok Fishmonger
Mong Kok fishmonger is a great example of the skill but rough edges of Mong Kok. He is a master of the blade but when it comes to cleanliness and smoke free environment those things are better found in the grocery store. Watching the skills one has to question will this still be seen in a generations time.
Mong Kok translates to bustling market/corner and there are not many corners that are not busy. This is one of the most dense places in the world. It still has the feel of the old and a bit dirty but that’s part of the beauty of Mong Kok. This is where people in the community shop for not just the freshest buy often cheapest food.
There really is no better place to see the way Hong Kong used to be than to spend time in the wet markets. This is where no mater how modern and powerful the mainstream retailers become there is still a place for old world. Wet markets can be found all over Hong Kong and some right next to the modern world including in Central business district.
The store front for the butcher is right on the edge of the street. The parts of the animal hang all day regardless of the temperature. The working conditions are tough but they are business owners as well as tradespeople. This is not factory processed operation that is faceless. The butcher knows what the customer wants as they are an important part of a caring community. For all the shortcomings now more than ever it’s great to see these parts of the communities go on for generations to come. This is what makes Hong Kong special.
