Perfect timing, it seems. Getting pretty nippy at 12 degrees today (at lunchtime!) on your seaside terrace...

So we can play pool between courses or watch pool player fisticuffs from our nearby tables? :twisted:
Any special discounts up there for bald diners looking like pool balls?

The best Diesel's-related artwork I've seen so far; by Dina, a fitting farewell?

We're still hoping for some more photos of Diesel's heydays, while the patrons are checking out where to congregate next?
Who'll be the next "hot bar"? Jing Jing? Island Bar? Cath's? Fountainhead? Lung Kong? Just Green's terrace? Bookworm Cafe's Classroom?...

From Bookworm Cafe (a former Lamma-zine advertiser).
They're calling this "a lean and clean vegetarian feast".

Colourful photos of the dishes on their Facebook page.

The Indian Thali (Chicken, lamb or vegetarian) seems to have become incredibly popular in The Waterfront Bar & Rest.!

This was our set lunch, ordered by all four of us the other day, 2 chicken, 2 lamb.
Great acclaim and high praises by everybody! This has become by far my favourite Indian meal on Lamma.

The Vegetable Thali is $75, Chicken $80 and Lamb $90, one of the very best deals in the village, for sure.

Shame they don't do it on the weekend so those of us who have to work in town during the week could try it.

Photo submitted by Robert Hope-Jones, photo of closed clothes shop opposite Nick's Corner on YSW Main Street.

Anybody knows more, like when it'll open and is it a move or a 2nd branch of a fast-expanding chain? ;-)
I could ask them, or even go up there in person to distant Tai Yuen Village, theoretically, but it's easier just to post here... :roll:

In the meantime, the waffle shop besides the former Diesel's is moving into Emily's right now.
The new name of Diesel's II in the former waffle shop hasn't been announced yet.

As usual, every year lots of changes in the local dining & drinking scene just around Lunar New Year...

As I understand it, they will open as soon as licences are sorted and it is a new (sort of venture) as the original is closing. This is a nice expansion from the first footprint. Better hot foot it over or call them to get the full picture though.

Yummy Yummy, ribs in my tummy
