The end of an empire

Saying goodbye is always had and painfull

So the time has come to say goodbye to our beloved restaurant, this does not go without tears or some feeling of sadness in our hearts.

We set out to try this and in the end, I can only say that we have set up a respectful restaurant that has a whole lot of strong points, and of course also some weak points.

A bit of history:
We set out with a dream from my wife to have her restaurant, after some time passed there was a place for rent just around the corner of our street (literally) and we decided to rent it.

After some time we decided it was time to open and had a blast handing out sate to people passing by and letting them taste our food for the first time, and it didn't take long for the first orders to come in, my sister being the first to order.

Fast forward a couple of months during which a whole lot of blood sweat and tears had flown we were ready to open our restaurant next to the takeaway. And this was the best choice ever. Now even more people could eat our food and plenty more than not were happy with it, taking them back to Bali.

However, a couple of months later we found a new dream to pursue keeping this one also in mind and taking a whole lot of lessons from it and taking them with us in our heads and hearts. So then we decided that the restaurant needed a successor, this being our colleague who is currently the owner of the restaurant.

So in the end we had a whole lot of fun, good and bad times, and met a bunch of great people in the process.
