面佬到位于香港上环的小巷上,一间70平方米的面店,是又又设计周志忆(Caroline Chou)和林振国(Kevin Lim)最新设计的面店。设计结合现代风格和传统,食物以东南亚美食为主。即使这面店落户在小巷尽头,但是由于这小巷是人们经常抄小路的地方。大门可以看到绿色不锈钢窗框和自己设计的餐厅标志。复古的绿色金属和混凝土设计使面店与其周围的社区融为一体。

Hidden in plain sight, Mean Noodles is not hard to find once you enter the alley from New Market Street in Sheung Wan. Run by the OPENUU design duo Caroline Chou and Kevin Lim, Mean Noodles reflects their love of good design and their passion for delicious food. Mean Noodles is envisaged as a casual noodle shop that specializes in traditional Southeast Asian cuisine with contemporary style. The entrance is emphasized with green stainless steel window frames and logo. The vintage metal look and concrete finish allows the noodle shop to blend harmoniously with its surrounding neighborhood.

面佬到是周林两人的是心机之作,当中注入了他们对设计美好的热爱,以及对美味食物的热情。周志忆和林振国既是一个与训练有素的设计师建筑师。林亦是巴黎蓝带厨艺学校(波士顿)毕业厨师,他曾经在美国麻萨诸塞州韦尔斯利镇与同为蓝带的蔡明昊厨师工作。林振国以新奇启发的烹饪风格,使用不同的食材,加上他精湛的表现,为现代的东南亚美食诠释新的形象。周林两人一直热衷于东南亚美食那种强烈而浓郁的味道。他不仅花时间钻研马来西亚菜式,而且还了解其他国家的一些秘密和技巧,希望重现一些有代表性的菜式,例如:槟城福建面,是一种知名的虾面,可以在槟城的小贩摊位找到;马来西亚叻沙,里面配有鸡蛋面和粉丝;炒粿条,马来西亚炒面;泰国粉红干捞粉,经典泰式粉色面条,这因为周林两人来到泰国时,这粉色面条成为了他们最喜爱的面条之一。

As a trained architect and professionally certified chef from Le Cordon Bleu (Boston), Lim worked closely with Chef Ming Tsai of Blue Ginger in Wellesley, MA, where he discovered his love of exotic ingredients. Blue Ginger was also one of Chou’s favorite restaurants in Boston, as she attended Wellesley College, a 10-minute walk to the restaurant. Chou and Lim are enthusiastic about the strong and intense flavors found in Southeast Asian cuisine. Lim has spent a great deal of time in Malaysia, and both he and Chou love traveling around southeast Asia in search of local eats, such as hawker stalls or hole in the wall places. One of their favorite dishes is the Thai Yen Ta Fo Heng, a classic Thai noodles dish. After discovering this not so well known Thai pink noodles dish, Chou and Lim began seeking it out whenever they visited Thailand.

「Mean」很精彩,很有趣的意思,而「Mean」也取至广东话「面」的谐音。作为餐厅的设计师和厨师主人,首要面临的挑战是如何从标志,品牌,食谱,室内室外中贯通成一个概念。周林两人为要特定颜色和图案,花了好些时间寻觅心水瓷砖和灯饰。家俬方面也花了不少心思,芥末色的椅子让面店的形象更立体呈现出来,让室内室外感觉如一。周林两人采取像马来西亚传统「峇迪」(Batik)花纹的瓷砖,是一种流行的纺织艺术。织物上精心制作的线条和花卉图案颜色鲜亮,充满活力。全因希望将这感觉融入到面佬到每个角落当中。

The name Mean Noodles is part nod to western slang and part play on the Chinese word for noodles. “Mean” describes something cool, awesome, interesting, nice and with all the goodness — as in having a “mean bowl of noodles.” “Mean” also sounds like “noodles” in Chinese. As both the design team and chef-owner of the restaurant, Chou and Lim faced the challenge of coming up with a consistent concept from logo, branding, noodle recipes, all the way to the interior and facade. Chou and Lim took their cue for the interior of Mean Noodles from Malaysian Batik, a popular textile art in leaves and floral motifs. The colors are light and vibrant, with carefully crafted lines and floral patterns on the fabrics.

开放式厨房让厨师与客人互动,让客人在等待的过程同时观看一场烹饪表演。酒吧上方的吊柜背有一个订制的「Mean」墙壁灯饰,这正是强调厨师对面的态度和口味的执着。开放式厨房墙身砖用了绿色填缝剂,突出了店内环境里的线条之观感。立食区让客人很快的、轻松的喝一杯,与友人渡过美好的时光。

The open kitchen fosters interactions between the customers and the chef, giving diners an opportunity to watch as their food is prepared. The hanging cabinets above the bar have custom “MEAN” lighting to emphasize the attitude and taste of the noodles. The kitchen subway tiles have been finished with green grout, emphasizing the line motif from the dining room. The standing bar across the seating area allows customers to grab a quick bite or an informal happy hour drink.

当云石台和云石马赛克配上绿色花纹瓷砖,这些与芥末色的椅子形成鲜明对比,加强品牌形象。客户舒适度也是设计过程中主要考虑的因素,林周两人利用楼底高的优势,让客人有舒适,通风的氛围。此外,客人可以利用USB插座在用餐时为手机充电,而手袋和银包可以挂在大理石桌面下面,以便客人舒适地坐下。

The marble tabletops and marble mosaic tiles compliment the mean green tiles, contrasted with the mustard seat fabric. Mean Noodles also takes advantage of the high ceilings to provide a comfortable and airy atmosphere for diners to enjoy. Customer comfort was also a major consideration in the design process; diners can utilize the USB outlets provided to recharge their electronics when dining, while bags and purses can be hung below the marble tabletops to allow customers to sit comfortably.
