Wah Kue Restaurant – in business and run by the same family for 64 years at 13434 1st Ave South in Burien – may close soon if a new owner isn’t found.
According to Gina, who has worked there for 17 years, after owner Wing Wong passed away three years ago, the kids “just don’t want to do it anymore.”
And if a new owner isn’t found soon, the historic Chinese restaurant will close by Dec. 31.
Asked what our Readers can do to save the restaurant, Gina said:
And if you can’t do that, she added, at least come in and spend your money on a local, legendary restaurant.
Several residents have “Wah Kue’d” – or gone “Wah Kuing” – for years, and they’re still using the same menu they did in 1950, back when gas was around 18 cents a gallon.
Gina added that their most popular item is the #3 combination dinner.
Wah Kue is open from 4 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. weekdays, and 4– 9:30 p.m. on weekends.
No reservations required.]]>
