Wait... It's Real?

As many times as I heard the song, it never occurred to me that there might actually be a restaurant by that name in Soho in London. I don't know which came first, though. I suppose I should have gone inside to see what the food was like, but I can get Chinese food (arguably) here in the United States, so I didn't think of it.

It's always odd to come across a place like this that you've heard of, but never paid much attention to. It lends a reality to the world that isn't always there, an understanding that the places you've never been have an existence, even though you aren't yet there.
