our local Chinese restaurant has been in existence for what seems like forever. i remember eating there as a child, meaning it’s been in operation for around thirty years. considering the average lifespan of an eatery is five years or less, that pretty much is forever.
needless to say, the food is pretty good and the service is excellent.
my observation is: there are always more African-American customers than Caucasian. by at least a 3:1 margin. and i can’t figure out why.
we all know what we call “Chinese food” isn’t really Chinese food, but i can’t see how that would have any effect. somehow, i doubt anybody really cares about the “authenticity” of their ethnic dining. if that were the case, all the local Mexican places would be empty.
is it because they don’t serve alcohol? you can eat without booze. and i know plenty of African-American people who can drink me way under the table.
so why are the white folks staying away? it just makes no sense. must be a cultural thing?
