His newest creation, Mr. Jones' Orphanage, is a Milk Bar featuring age-old recipes from Ash's own grandmother, Amy Hipkin. The entire interior are made of the light color of wood, which give you a warm feeling and relaxed atmosphere. Its fairy-tale-like design and decoration with fluffy teddy bears, vintage prints, and toys also gives you a feeling like you've have experienced the moment in your childhood once again.
