Media just loves the Chinese restaurant in Baghdad story. The Times of Lonndon also takes alook at the Chinese restaurant in Baghdad with a piece that is horribly headlined: “Chinese chefs take a wok on the wild side in world’s most dangerous city.”
Tidbits we learn
- It is probably the only non-Iraqi restaurant â€” and possibly the only non-Arab business â€” in the city except for a handful huddled in the fortified, sealed-off Western enclaves.
- The local Baghdadis feel that peace is on its way. And the Chinese restuarants makes them feel almost cosmopolitan.
- The restaurat workeres have left their families behind in China, work all the time, and sleep next door to the restaurant in a single room.
- The new tenants do notÂ serve sweet and sour pork.
