This shop opened in 1909, so it’s been 108 years. It was opened by my great grandfather.

In fact, the shop wasn’t always here; it had been in the market around this area at first as a food cart, being pushed around. They sold a variety of food not just roasted duck. Then, when he saved enough money, he rented a building and opened his first shop.
