Yucca de Lac may have closed down, but the famed scenic restaurant was still attracting more visitors yesterday. Music shop owner Chow Chack-kwan, 40, sacrificed a day's business to make his first visit to the Tai Po landmark with his wife. 'I want to take photos of everything and everywhere in this restaurant,' said the Tuen Mun resident who had only seen the place in movies. Although the restaurant closed on Tuesday, the owners allowed him in to take a look after he telephoned yesterday morning. Yucca de Lac owner Pang Chien-ting said he had received about 10 calls yesterday morning for permission to visit. 'We will still allow people to come here this week to take pictures, but no food will be offered,' he said. There was a farewell gathering yesterday for a group of former staff members, who had a final, four-course meal together. Exchanging phone numbers, they vowed to meet in future. As well as giving his employees their salaries and long-service payment, Mr Pang awarded them extra bonuses and gave each $2,000 for a five-day trip to eastern China. 'Some of them have never flown, so we are sponsoring them,' said Pang Sung-keung, 86, who managed the restaurant for 30 years. 'Some worked here for 20 years or more and are already aged. I'll miss the staff and this place. We've been together a long time.'
