Robert, those lists certainly take me back! I knew as a restaurant employee, that the one way to make yourself irreplaceable to the managers is to be one of the people who looked after the cleaning and volunteered for cleaning crews, when the monthly “deep cleaning” times rolled around. Yes, it was something that didn’t endear you to some of your co-workers, especially when the time came for evaluations and raises, but, hey! Some of the people you helped out weren’t just making excuses when they said that “People wouldn’t listen to me, or do what I tell them to do.” And YOU were absolutely right in telling them that they either needed to tell those people to get with the program, or fire their asses! Not everyone is cut out for cleaning, and not everyone will WANT to do it. But they WILL want to collect a paycheck every two weeks. So they just have to stay on top of hiring and training quality employees. Simple as that.
It's hard to find good Peking duck-the kind that's crispy on the outside, meaty and juicy on the inside. But Home's Kitchen serves the real thing. Start with dumpling (steamed or fried $), and get the Peking Duck ($ for half, $ for whole) to share. The dumplings are filled to the dough with well-seasoned meat (a rarity), and the crispy, rich duck comes with all the fixings. Home's also offers $ dinner specials, which include a green salad, soup or soda, white or brown rice and one of 30 main entrees such as shrimp with black bean sauce and Buddhist delight.
