"The Klang" - I first came across The Klang in the old Huguenots Restaurant, French Church Street, Cork.  This Classical French 80s restaurant had the most amazing buzz, filled with adrenaline like nothing else, it was overpowering & infectious. The Klang became my soul, my core, my life, my world & my love.  It's now with me as The Pepperstack my Klang"
