Bao Bun

Yum Yum with Bing Bing

Thoughts From the Coffee Table: I find it fascinating that every culture has it’s own sandwich. Yet that statement alone means that I am already biased to the term “sandwich.”

At a place called Bing Bing Dim Sum, in the Passyunk neighborhood of Philly, I fell in love. With a pork bao bun.

During Happy Hour you can get two of these babies for $5. I’m not going to lie. I ate both. And wanted more.

The food was amazing, hands down. I also enjoyed a Happy Buddha beer, in a bottle shaped like a green Buddha. What fun!

But the experience was made by the bartender (Dumpling Man Mike).

Watching him manage the barrage of orders from the restaurant, as well as care for the 10 or so of us crowded up at the tiny bar proved his value to this business.

What does it take to be professional, in any work environment? How do we put aside our personal issues, our lives, our distractions? How do we stay dedicated to being the best “worker” we can?

Dumpling Man Mike could have been stressed. He could have been overwhelmed. He could have been contemplating his next career move. But if he was, we never knew. We just knew that we were his priority. We were his reason for doing his job that day, at that time, to perfection.

Only one thing was lacking. A third bao bun.
