The Wanchai (Wahn-chaye ) district is one of Hong Kong's busiest commercial areas. People from every part of Hong Kong society pass throughbusiness people and laborers, shoppers and even commuters trying to get to the pier so they can take the Wanchai Ferry across Victoria Harbor to Kowloon.
In 1972, Madame Chong left her home in Central East China for a new life in the bustling city of Hong Kong. To support her two young daughters, Madame Chong began making dumplings from an old family recipe and selling them from a cart in Wanchai.
Although her dumplings attracted many fans, Madame Chong was not satisfied. She listened to her customers carefully and revised her recipes until they were perfect in every detail. Word soon spread across the city and her dumplings became the talk of the town. The Hong Kong press even named Madame Chong the city's "Dumpling Queen."
In 1985, Madame Chong established the Wanchai Ferry Peking Dumpling Company to make her creations more widely available.
Since that time, Wanchai Ferry has become a leading brand not only in Hong Kong but the world over. Now people across Asia, Europe and even the United States can enjoy restaurant quality Chinese food in the comfort of their own homes.
