The long wait is almost over! This Sunday, July 25th, at precisely 10:30 am, dim sum comes to Wallingford.
We caught up with Po Lee, the man behind the storied House of Hong (which he sold after 20 years) and the owner of the new Bamboo Village at corner of Stone Way and N 49th St today as he and his workmen were putting the finishing touches on the restaurant in anticipation of their launch.
Po confirmed that they’ll be serving dim sum 7 days a week, from 10:30 to 3 pm “Hong Kong dim sum” style (they push a cart around the restaurant and let you choose what you like) and then by order from 3 pm – 9 pm.
This all reminds us of what we consider our most brilliant business idea to date. It’s like dim sum, in that waiters push a cart around the restaurant with small dishes of food, except instead of Hong Kong delicacies, it’s American-style breakfast foods: one little silver-dollar pancake, a quarter of a waffle, a small fried egg, a single piece of bacon, a quarter-size biscuit.
Why is it so brilliant? How often do you look at a breakfast menu and think “I want one of each”, but you know you can’t possibly eat that much. So instead, you have a lot of one thing, instead of a little of everything?
And the name? Gimme Some!, as in “gimme some of that, and some of that, and some of that!” A true, American-style breakfast experience.
Brilliant, right? Now selling investment opportunities.
