You've described it best...unpretentious! It's basically in the middle of a market area, so there are other take-way restaurants in the vicinity, and with the amount of foot traffic that passes through this street, there is a fair amount of debris. So, yes indeed...it's far from anything fancy or accommodating. It's one of those places however that appeals to my simple senses.
Plus, it's chuck full of sights, sounds and interesting people that make for wonderful subjects...if only I would have had the inclination for "people pictures" back then!? Oh well, live and learn.
Always a treat to hear from you. Take good care. Thanks for taking the time to write.
