I don't think you can get a working permit with such a kind of job. Better continue to be a language teacher.
The question is where is this 'restaurant'? Any address? Or is this article merely a Chinese fake for fun? If really existing I wonder what kind of permit is required in China to run such a business.
There are loads of "white guy" jobs in China, as well as in places like Japan. Expat boards are full of them.
In China once you have a work permit for a teaching job then you can do any other job, not like in the UK where a work permit now ties you to a particular job (unless you're an EU citizen).
From what I've read and have been told, your work visa actually is tied to your job in China. And once you quit (or get laid off) it automatically goes back to a one month tourist visa, or L visa.
Was I informed wrong?
As of last time I checked, you're right, but the difference between China and, say, Korea, is that you are allowed to work at unlimited side jobs on the same permit and many jobs in China are easy enough to give you the time to do so.
