Question Chinese Restaurants

My DD and I have wondered about something for a long time and I have decided to put the question out here at Family Corner to see if anyone can answer it for us. ;-)

First, let me say that this question is not meant to be disrespctful at all. We're just curious.

Does anyone here know why most Chinese restaurants close from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. ???

Everywhere we have lived, it has been this way.

I tried to research it on the internet but never found the answer.

TIA!!

Howdy there sis~

Around our neck of the woods the Chinese resturants remain open. In fact their lunch specials (which is basically half price) run 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

Huh, well if you happen to find out let me know. Got my curiosity going on now

Maybe it is just that particular family's preference?

Every city/state I have lived in, the chinese restaurants have done this.

They are open here too......HHHMMM......


Maybe you could ask one of the owners why this is.

Isnt there a tradition about a "rest" time during the day that some cultures follow?


Im curious too. Do let us know if you find out.

I did not want to embarass myself by asking at the Chinese Restaurant.

But, it looks like I need to go eat Chinese so that I can ask and get the answer!!
