Q: Why is this installment named ‘Bad Luck Dragon VS. Bunny Chow’?
A: We took a bunch of the common dishes and techniques of our favorite American-asian haunts and crashed them into some of our favorite southern-region African dishes and techniques (Bunny Chow is a popular South African dish for instance).
Q: Why bad luck?
A: Do you have any extra good luck? If so, could you throw some our way please? We are in the restaurant industry after all 😂
Q: Who are you?
A: We’re the creative gang behind ‘Bang Up to the Elephant!’ and ‘Beatrice & Woodsley’. We geek out on globe-trotting culinary history and technique –and we have a weird sense of humor.
Q: How are you doing this?
A: We’re making all of this from scratch; ideas, foods, and even some of our cooking tools. We’re doing this from our two existing kitchens –since we have the opportunity with all these unpredictable mandates.
Q: Do you deliver?
A: Yep! In fact, with Unofficial Translation, that’s all we do-
A: We’d be honored! So honored in fact, that we’ll give you a discount on your event just for inquiring. Drop us an email with your deets and we’ll get back with you within 48 hours.
Q: How long will this go on?
A: How long does a pandemic usually last? We don’t know. But while it’s going on, we’re going to make the most out of it. Don’t expect it to last forever, or likely past spring… We don’t sit still long, and we’re likely going to try something new if we have the time (if we still can’t fully open our “brick & mortar” restaurants.
Q: what is the secret of life the universe and everything?
Q: Does this food you serve cure COVID-19?
A: No. But it does cure boredom 😉
Q: Anyone in the photos below available?
Thank you for your patience and understanding these past many months as we’ve carefully considered how to best provide our creativity and service to our neighborhood. We’re committed to doing absolutely everything we possibly can to ensure the health and sanitation of our guests, staff, purveyors, and surrounding community.
We are closely monitoring the official guidance provided by both the CDC, WHO, and Denver Public Health as we cautiously reopen our beautiful little restaurant. We are vigilant in ensuring all of our staff have been fully briefed (and are constantly updated) on the ongoing situation and sanitary practices.
As always, we continue to take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene across our restaurant at all times. Because, in simple terms, we created a restaurant dedicated to making people happy and healthy. While there are many other wonderful reasons to visit with us, this basic edifice of health and happiness will always be our primary goal; public contagions be damned.
One other tidbit we’d like to share: while we hope that the virus is eliminated in short order, we know that certain realities may hamper these efforts. As such, we have committed to being flexible with our staffing, scheduling, and general operations. “Slow and steady wins the race” is how we’re moving forward. So, while we may occasionally choose to quickly limit our offerings, hours, or service from time to time, we ask that you forgive us these trespasses –knowing that our goal is to protect you and ourselves, so we can all have a chance to hug each other in the long-term. After all, the whole point is to get to the other side of this finish line, happy and healthy. 😉
