I reside on Marine Drive in South Surrey/Ocean Park.
Currently, there are four homes built, or being built, within sight of my house and they all contain a wok kitchen.
I don’t like to think of myself as a racist, but I don’t see who these houses are being built and marketed to besides the current Asian wave.
A wok kitchen is a fad.
I toured an open house to see what all the fuss was about, and I just don’t get it. Mom is going to be stuck in a little room by herself, as there is no room in there for anyone else, while all her family and friends are just outside the door having fun and a glass of wine while she cooks in her ‘special’ room. How are the kids going to learn to cook when they can’t see the prep? How does mom communicate with everyone while in there? Completely depressing for her, in my opinion.
There was also another tiny room by the kitchen with two chairs in it that I have no idea what the use was for – there were no closets, shelves, or bookcases in there.
That could have been turned into a wok kitchen, if the purchaser so wished, but the deed was done in the floor plan and shoved down anyone who isn’t interested in the current fad’s throat.
