大和堂 Tai Wo Tang X 慧惠 Wai Wai
Tai Wo Tang | 24 Nga Tsin Long Road
I went to Tai Wo Tang when this historic Chinese medicine center was set to revitalise as a coffee shop. You would feel like returning to the old Hong Kong when you see their golden plaque, solid wood cabinet, medicine bottles, arch door and the slanted shelves. The late Chinese Herbalist Chung Pak Ming and his son Chung Fook Lee had practised Chinese medicine their whole life and were much admired by the kaifongs. Hope their stories will be well told in the revitalisation project.
Thanks Henry Shek for the invitation of the illustration project.
