In another, healther, lifetime, I would like to open a wee little shoppe.
Like a hole-in-the-wall noodle shop that’s just big enough to hold one of those long stainless steel hot table-cookers so I could make okonomiyaki, noodles and gyoza in front of customers. There would with stools around the perimeter of the counter and maybe a handful of tables along the wall that each seat 2-3 more people. And we’d serve lots of cold beers to go with the food…
I would like for there to be 2 cooks and 1 waitress. Two waitresses might be overkill for the size of establishment I am dreaming of, especially if I am capable of doing some of the running work myself. For the cooks, it would be either myself, along with a second cook or else two cooks dedicated solely to kitchen, then I could be the resident hostess “boss lady” of the shop to greet people as they come in and be the last person to wish them well as they leave happily with warm, full bellies and higher, happier spirits.
Another lifetime, perhaps….
