Born and raised in Jordan, the Liu family is as much a neighbourhood institution as their namesake brand, Liu Ma Kee. Selling preserved bean curd products since 1905, the store and family have been at the same address since its inception. Jay Liu is the fourth-generation owner of the family business, and has lived, played, and worked in the Jordan area since birth. He insists on using the traditional methods of production passed down by his great-grandfather, because “there are things that cannot be automated, and need to be made by hand.”
They say nothing beats the taste of home, and for Liu it is preserved bean curd. There are also restaurants and shops that he has been going to since he was young, Yue Hwa Chinese Products Emporium (裕華國貨), Sa Kee Roasted Meats (沙記乳豬燒臘) and Chung Kee Dessert (松記糖水店). “I feel at home here,” he says. Music is another important part of Liu’s life — an accomplished flautist, Liu spent his university days abroad, but England just didn’t feel the same. “I like that here, I can just head downstairs to the stationery store to buy what I want. You can’t really get anything from the ones in England.”
