Jimmy's Kitchen Kowloon (1st location) [????-????]

There was a Jimmy's Kitchen in Kowloon in the 1930's already. It was located at (approx. 28) Hankow Road in the European Houses on Hankow Road (1920/30's) [c.1929-c.1962].  Possibly the restaurant was there during the existence of the houses.

Wasn't mentioned on their website.

Kaiser Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge [c.1958-c.1977]

Date Place completed: 
c.1958-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)
Date Place demolished: 
c.1977-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

Was located at the Junction of Carnarvon and Granville Roads. First appearance on a 1958 photo. The building was demolished before the Taurus Building opened in 1978.

"Kaiser" is the German name for "Emperor", so it was possibly a German restaurant.

Update 2020-02-05: according to the advert from 1958 it's a restaurant with "Famous European, American, French & Russian Cuisine".

Historical Amsterdam: 1696 pharmacy Van der Meulen & Chinatown

Taking a walk from Shipping House (Het Scheepvaarthuis) at Prins Hendrikkade, to Oude Kerk, you pass the Bantammerbrug, where you find the pharmacy Van der Meulen, in use as a pharmacy since 1696.

The wall above the pharmacy has a facing brick with a 'yawner', which can sometimes still be seen above historical pharmacies in the Netherlands.
