Little Prince Kids Restaurant Korea Locations
It’s such a drag when web links change. Ugh. I just went back to check on the Little Prince Kids Restaurant and found that their main web page was gone. It links to a medical page now.
I updated my original post with the link to their Naver page, but I always find Naver hard to navigate. That’s a bit of irony, don’t you think?
One thing about Korean websites is that they use Flash like crazy. They love to run little animations in the page and put content in a Flash template. The problem with that is it makes using a translation support tool like Google Translate rather useless. Google can’t translate text in a Flash format. Therefore, I have no hope of reading the message on the page. Or, it takes me HOURS to work through tiny segments of text by sounding out each Korean word.
By contrast, Japan web developers don’t seem to have such a love affair with using Flash so Japanese sites are easier to translate and understand. The English translation and grammar are by no means perfect, but you can still understand the basic message or sentiment and enjoy Japan even as a foreigner.
On the plus side, through my efforts with the Little Prince web search, I came across a listing of all the locations of the Little Prince Restaurant throughout Korea. There aren’t just one or two. There are dozens! There’s even one in Orange County California that opened in July 2010.
Here’s a list, based on my rough translation with the limited aid of Google Translate. It lists the city where each Little Prince is said to have opened and the date it opened.
I should preface this by saying that I have not been to these locations so I can’t exactly confirm their existence, but if you’ve been to one of these, leave a comment below and we’ll confirm their existence together!
I also came across the menu for Little Prince Cafe in Korea so I’ll include that after the list.
