Mooki’s Two Month Anniversary
Yesterday marked Mooki’s two month anniversary. That’s just eight weeks, Chinas; eight short little weeks with so much happening. We have made so many new friends in that short little time frame that it hardly seems possible.
So let’s get on with the latest news! Kenko is back from Merry old England on Friday; apparently she was a little late for the end of season all-you-can-grab night sales, so alas she was unable to pick up the flat screen and Ipad I asked her to get for me. I may let her return to work anyway. Maybe.
Ono (our nom-nom and snacky snack chef) has left us (this one’s for real, folks) to pursue a career as a pastry chef at some hotel or another. According to her, Wontons and Spring rolls do NOT constitute pastries for some reason I can’t quite fathom. We wish her well…but not TOO well; she has deserted us after all. Just to be clear, we at Mooki do not harbour grudges. Nope, that’s not our style at all. We may occasionally haul them into a dry dock, give them a thick coat of lacquer and reserve them for redeployment at an appropriate future date of our choosing, though. It’s not really the same thing, so we feel good about it. We will miss you Ono. Or to be more accurate we will be watching you. We don’t like the word Stalking, so let’s just agree to disagree on that one.
Filling her Crocks will be our most Faithful and long serving staff member Bob (AKA Square pants, Bobtastic, Bobra Cadabra, Prometheus and Bob, Super Bob etc.), who has been with me since the very beginning. On day three of construction of Mooki, London (Judd’s faithful Car Guard) brought Bob over to help me as a general labourer while I built all the tables and the Bar and all the other bits and pieces that turn an empty shell into a restaurant. Five months later Bob has moved up the ladder through cleaner and prep chef to trainee chef. Well done Bob.
The other fantastic bit of news is the Tokyo Go Go exhibition happening on the 20th. We are so super amped for this it’s almost pornographic! (our excitement…… not the exhibition……although we probably wouldn’t say no to a bit of Spanky Spanky. I think I’m getting side tracked here.) This is going to be Uber awesome and we are inviting you Chinas to pop in and have a look. It begins at 6:30 and we will be serving the aforementioned Snacky Snacks and Nom Noms as well as our almost-famous Chocolate Chilli Sake shots for Mahala. This exhibition is so far up our alley that it’s postman walks right by us to get to it.
One last thing. I promise. Well, maybe two. Our new lunch menu is in full swing, so go check it out as soon as you finish reading this. We are delivering during the day in a two block radius, so give us a Tinkle. Also, we need you Chinas to start sending in your Haikus from your offices. The funniest submission will be rewarded with (you guessed it) Snacky snacks and Nom noms for your office.
