'Physically, emotionally drained': a Scarborough restaurant owner is forced to close


Chang Rong Huang’s dream was owning a buffet restaurant. Now, each morning he walks through the dark, empty shell of his dining room to cook for the trickle of customers he has left.

Huang, from Guangdong, China, worked 10 years for the previous owner before buying the restaurant and reopening it as Scarborough Buffet in 2015.

He took out a bank loan, used his house as collateral, and borrowed from family and friends.
