Every trade has its masters - visiting a noodle restaurant operated as a social enterprise this weekend

This weekend, my wife and I went to a Korean noodle chain restaurant operated as a social enterprise by the Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, Hong Kong. Positioning itself in the middle to higher tier of the market, this social enterprise nurtures professional chefs in Korean cuisine and teaches young people the Korean way of hospitality.

Trained by chefs from Korea, the local young cooks in this restaurant have superb culinary skills, with which they created delicious dishes that my wife and I enjoyed very much.

The vision of this social enterprise is that every trade has its masters. From preparing and serving Korean food, young people may progress through different pathways to become chefs in Korean cuisine, restaurant managers or owners of Korean chain restaurants.

Tonight, I saw that the customers of the restaurant included people from different countries. This gave the young people working there the opportunity to communicate with people of different nationalities.

I always believe that every trade has its masters. This social enterprise bears testimony to this truth. Our society should create more such opportunities for young people to flourish and unleash their potential.
