Great Wall in Roseville, MN

After a quick, late dinner at the Willowgate II Chinese restaurant in Roseville the other night, the owner showed us a project he is working on. Outside the restaurant he is building a scale model of a section of the Great Wall of China. He spent some time educating us on the history of the Chinese empire. His philosophy is to make all of his guests "emporors" and "empresses" as they enter the establishment by only walking on stone (as the emporers did). He is planning on having a ceremony in a couple of weeks when the wall will be done.

The current owner has been making some changes inside also. The menu has changed a bit to include some Thai items in addition to the Chinese dishes.
