Late Night Diner: Fed with a Warm Heart, Please Keep up the Good Work Tomorrow!

Chief Development Officer – Alan Kuo: “Bringing to you heart warming stories through simple homemade dishes and flavors in stores that are worthwhile to taste. Just like what I heard before: Our heart will warm up after we are full. So I recommend the Japanese drama that goes by the same name.”

About Late Night Diner   

Abe Yaro’s Late Night Diner takes place at a diner that opens at mid-night and is located inside an alley in a busy district. Late Night Diner combines everyday cuisines and real-life stories of people from all walks of life that sometimes feel heartwarming and at other times sad. These cuisines served not only smell delicious but also are filled with the most innocent friendliness.     

The life stores are interesting yet diverse – they can be the innocent memories from a crime lord, struggles of an unrecognized female singer, or family baggage of a male AV idol. Each story begins after each delicious yet simple dish is served. In each episode, the core theme is centered on customers with different social statuses and from different classes, and Yaro attempts to connect plots using interpersonal relationships. Stores are spilled out, one after another, as each cuisine is served. I am so into this book that after a few pages, I even feel like closing the book, taking my wallet, walking down the stairs, and going out the door. Around the corner, there seems to be a late night diner inviting me with its soft yellow light.
