This is a little bit of a personal story and a little bit of a business story, but I’ll just tell it like it is. I started East meets West Catering back in 1996. It was the first place in town that offered a full service catering kitchen for weddings, parties, and events. I was a small business owner that had been in my family for many generations and I was still learning how to run a business.
The catering business was a lot of a time commitment and a lot of a lot of work. So a lot of it was just being able to do a great job and get the customers satisfied. But that doesn’t make it easy. There’s a lot of work that goes into preparing a meal from scratch. It can be a lot of sitting and talking and talking and talking. I think my favorite part of the business is the long hours.
The hardest part is not being able to get the meals done. I think it is part of the reason that I was always a little afraid to try catering. I think it is one of the reasons because I was always afraid that if I wasnt doing the work then they would feel like they were doing something wrong. When you are just sitting down to sit there, you may be doing something wrong. Sometimes you look at your watch and you realize, “I have to go.
The hardest part is not being able to get the meals done. The hardest part is not being able to get the meals done. Sometimes you look at your watch and you realize, I have to go.
Most of us don’t think about this. When you are just sitting there, sitting down, it is hard to even think of taking a bite and not eating it. It is hard to think of washing the dishes, and then not getting up to do it. It is hard to get up and just get out of the house. It is hard to get up and start the car and just drive away. It is hard to go back in and see that the food was fine.
east meets west is not just about food. The food is really the main reason why people visit east meets west. It is about meeting new people, and having a little bit of fun. It’s not about food, it’s about meeting other people, and having some fun.
Yeah, we can all agree that east meets west’s food is great. But the real reason it’s great, is because of the people that you meet. I’ve always been partial to the west side of the city, and I’ve got a hard time imagining living in east LA. When I moved here I had to decide whether I wanted to be a part of the west side of the city or the east side. I’ve had to change my mind a few times.
You have to realize that east-west food is only one of the many ways that people meet in the city. There are also nightclubs, bars, restaurants, festivals and events, and all sorts of things that meet in the city. But the real reason it works, it because of the people. There are also many businesses and events that happen on the east-west corridor that have nothing to do with food.
The east side is primarily for nightlife. The west side is primarily for business. But the people are what makes the whole thing work. The people in the eastside, for example, are always smiling because they know that people are walking down the street and they see them.
And that’s not even talking about the weirdos who are always hanging out at a certain place or the people who love to sing in a specific accent. The eastside is for people who like to go to bars and get into trouble. The westside is for people who like to do bad things, and people who enjoy getting drunk.
