Yesterday marked 20 years since we opened the Rickshaw Express on Jackson Street! It’s been nearly 10 years since we sold it but I still have fond memories of the friendships that came out of the experience of owning that restaurant.
On Friday, I stopped by to buy lunch and the food was good. Later that evening, I heard from one of the owners who informed me that her restaurant partner Hon passed away last year. He was a nice man and very supportive of community endeavors.
I had hoped to offer some help with a 20-year anniversary celebration, which is quite a milestone in the restaurant business. Instead, I’ll send out a blurb in my Hayward-Centric e-newsletter recognizing the longevity of the business. Visit here later this week for that e-newsletter: www.365ThingsToDoInHayward.com
