So now you know where I went. I have a million billions things to tell you about our first three months of business. Some of the bad things that have happened are: plumbing problems, difficulty placing ordering food in Chinese, expensive lettuces which must be ordered 2 weeks in advance and cost between $10 and $30 dollars wholesale, lack of staff and when finally finding good staff and training them for 2 months that staff member being bought away by another restaurant, lack of space for equipment, lack or refrigerator space. Some of the great things have been: people like our food! We are the #5 ranking Taipei restaurant on Trip Advisor. We will be featured in some publications this coming month. We have pulled off 2 successful holiday meals Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Thanksgiving at Loft
More tales later, and recipes, I hope. Happy 2013!
