Let that Bitch Breathe!!!!!!!
Dayyyaaammmm NY, who knew yall liked baos like dat? People are upset, but I blame cows. Who told these heifers to grow only one diaphragm (skirt steak)? On friday I had 75lbs of skirt in the fridge for Saturday/Sunday (usually we only need 25lbs a day). I get a call at 1am Saturday morning from staff saying we 86'd skirt. I woke up and called mad butchers Sunday cause my purveyor was closed. No one had enough skirt. So, I got real desperate and called Duane Reade cause I know they always got diaphragms. I asked for 75 lbs. Nuttin... some old ladies and careful teens bought them out. So I had to break out my personal stash of kobe zabuton. You win, I lose.
Sorry for the waits this weekend, as many who read the blog know, I opened this spot with $300 left in my personal savings account and ZERO in the biz. This space is all I could afford. 90% of people are understanding, know the story and I thank you for your patience. When I could, I gave out cannolis, beijing peanuts, fries, etc. while people waited in line. We flipped 600 buns out of a 400 sq ft space with NO BASEMENT Saturday, you can't knock the hustle.
But, there are also a lot of people who come in now mad at me saying my space is too small and that we should have a bigger restaurant.... So, as a gold digger once told Daddy, "Buy me sumthin."
