He had already passed the baton to her children, his children are now the decision makers of the business. Even though the shop sells traditional snacks and treats, you can sense the efforts put in by the boss's children to keep the business on par with modern times!The shop's young boss wears a pair of spectacles and looks very studious; he proudly admits his passion towards dragon phoenix spring rolls. He started sharing the story about how the spring rolls came about: In the early days, Rui Fang was a mining town. People's lives were hard and thus could not afford the luxury of eating chicken drumsticks. Since unaffordable, why not "make" some? So the people then used vegetables, fish paste, oil skin wraps etc to "make" a drumstick. This enabled the poorer folks to enjoy and feel satisfied. The name of the dish is also excellent! It sounds auspicious- dragon and phoenix are in the name. The spring roll was a substitute for chicken drumstick in those times, but now, with the living standards of people improving, real chicken drumsticks are available everywhere and affordable. As such, "Dragon Phoenix Spring Roll", which is only available in Rui Fang, is now more sought after normal chicken drumsticks. The demand for the spring rolls is very high now, so to keep up with the demand, the spring rolls are no longer made into the shape of drum sticks, but into long tube-like sausages.
