Yumbii@Work in Smyrna
I work with a polarized group of very adventurous eaters and “gravy eaters.” The latter is a term my buddy Sam concocted to describe “meat and starch” types for whom any green stuff is verboten, let alone something with lemongrass, tamarind or saffron.
We’re working with a group of consultants who fall into the first category, and they’d heard me rave about Hankook Taqueria. They wanted to gift us a group lunch to celebrate the latest phase of our project going live, and the only request from the group was “please, no more pizza*.”
They put two and two together, somehow miraculously managed to get the less adventurous to agree to try something new and brought in the Yumbii truck (yumbii.com). Hit, I tell you, hit… and shameful, abject jealousy from the adventurous eaters in our other building across the street (we couldn’t very well invite the whole headquarters contingent of 350 people on the consultant’s dime).
I’d still note that the first folks in line in the picture are in the adventurous group. Still, we had probably 30-ish folks take the plunge, and everyone loved it.
Well done, Yumbii/Hankook folks :)
And is anyone successfully chasing the truck on Twitter? Apparently, another buddy of mine down in the Equitable building in downtown is having some luck catching them.
* Btw, our pizza consumption covered the Symrna-area gamut from pedestrian to awesome:
Pizza Hut–>Johnnys–>Jets–>St. Angelos
