Raven King Ming (Ray) GIN,

A funeral will be held on Wednesday for Raven King Ming (Ray) GIN, he is from the Clan of which the Wah Lee people came. You may remember his genre breaking Orient Restaurant. It was beneath Strand Arcade. Previously, there were small formica top tables and Chop suey and steak and chips. Tried his steak and chips too, they were great. But I was young, and had no idea of my opinion going viral by word of mouth. Someone asked what it was like, and whilst excellent might have said something like it was not like mum's??? So the word may have got back. OOOPs. Like · · Share · 4018 · 12 hours ago · Darlene Cook, Lia Garnett, Nea Harris and 37 others like this.
