The kitchen I inherited doesn’t have all the equipment that I need to do my dishes 100%. I’ve been trying to force a square peg in a round hole making it work, but at the end of the day, I need a Taiwanese/Chinese kitchen. It’s gonna take me a little bit to get it organized/set-up the way I want, but trust it will happen ASAP. I won’t put out food that isn’t 100 and when we do open, I guarantee it’ll be perfect.
