Coming soon: Monk Asian Eatery.

It looks like there’s a new Asian eatery called Monk going in on Main Street between Sixth and Seventh Streets where The Orient used to be

I can’t wait to try this place once it opens. I hope it’s as good at The Orient or even better. Because you can never have too many good Asian eateries.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿœโค๏ธ

Happy trails, Orient.

I was walking back to the office up Main Street and noticed that Orient had closed…

Orient was an odd little place. You couldn’t pay with a credit card. They only took cash. I don’t really carry cash so I get didn’t eat there as often as I would have liked. My friend, Chuck used to live right above Orient and was convinced it was a front for something. Say what you will about the place, they had some great food. And I’m sad to see them go. They will be missed.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿšโค๏ธ

 

Orient.

I’ve been having a craving for Chinese food lately. Unfortunately, one thing that the Northside is missing, or that we haven’t discovered yet, is a good Chinese restaurant. Thankfully, I can satisfy my hankering for some good Chinese foodย by just taking a quick walk from my officeย down Main Street…

Thank goodness for Orient

And here is the delicious General Tso’s chicken I had for lunch…

YUM! ๐Ÿ™‚
