That would be me, the Kiss of Death for Asian restaurants. If I like the place and consider it a favorite, it's going to go out of business. First Purim Oak in Towson, then Bangkok Place in Govans, then Pacific Rim in Cockeysville, now Jesse Wong's Hong Kong in Columbia. They served the best Peking duck, crispy bone flounder, and other delicious meals at dinner time, and their dim sum was fantastic.
I am heartbroken.
I also have a $30 gift card that I scored after that whole debacle with Jesse Wong's Kitchen. That crappy outpost lives on, while the good restaurant is gone. It's not fair.
