Hello to Shirley Chin from your old college roommate! I'll bet this brings back memories!
I remember Mee Hong's. When I was a very young girl, they had some kind of scandal. Rumors of serving cat, instead of chicken in their recipes.
I think it was the Hon Hong's across from the Majestic that closed because of the cats, later the Player's Corner Pub (loved their food).
My Mother took me here all the time. Food was good but as a child I found the décor scarey
And do you remember, my sentimental friends, the small brass patina plate that hung near the front door with these words on them "THROUGH THESE PORTALS PASS THE NICEST PEOPLE WE KNOW"....If I ever open a restaurant, I will borrow these gorgeous words.
I don't remember that one, and I worked at the Air Force Recruiting office on the Mall from 82-86. Maybe it was closed by then.
