You never really know until you try right? Generally speaking, local restaurants are crowded because they are good. I'm pretty sure HK has one of the highest restaurant-to-people ratios in the world. Translation? Serve good food or go out of business. There are two restaurants within a 3-minute walk from our place. One is good. The other? Not so much. The good one, we call the "cat" restaurant. Why? Because there is a cat in the kitchen. Simple enough. I do know that cat is not on the menu. I also see that there is a "no-dogs" allowed sign on the entry door. So, I'm thinking it's just part of the family that runs the place. Great food and really friendly service. They even bring Luke a baby spoon. On mondays, I have staff meeting and then usually have more meetings after that, so the cat-place is an easy place to meet April and the boys after work. There it is. Life as we know it.
