Dim sum brunch

Please note comments below! Do you love dim sum? Do you not know what it is and want to give it a try? Come enjoy a tasty dim sum brunch Sunday, July 18th at
Oriental East in
Silver Spring. This place is notorious for long lines on weekends before it opens at 11am and they do not take reservations on weekends. Usually a group won't get seated until all of the party has arrived, which can result in a really, really long wait if many people are late. So please plan to arrive by
10:30am so we can get in line, get inside and eat promptly! I will hopefully have already nabbed a good spot in line by then. I'll bring a red paper Meetup sign with me. Please bring cash if you can. It tends to make paying less of a headache. See you there! --V.C. *PS: MSG-free dimsum dishes are not available.

    The option of YES for status is up but you cant click it :( Waiting is not up anymore.

    I've increased the number one FINAL time. Be warned that attempting to coordinate seating for 30 here is pretty much courting disaster, but here goes... Please, ARRIVE EARLY, between 10am and 10:30am. Any later and I cannot guarantee you a seat with the group if we get inside by then! It's awesome there's so much interest, but no one will get seated for a long time if we wait for everyone. If you do find yourself 'left behind', hopefully you can get seated with others who may arrive later.

    I really want to go, but still in the waiting list. can I still go on Sunday? Thx!

    July 16, 2010

  • V.C.

    Since there is more interest in this than I had anticipated, I've increased the group number. I will emphasize again that I cannot reserve any tables due to the place's popularity, so we'll probably just head inside with the number of people who've arrived at that point. We'll also probably be split at more than one table. Should be fun and tasty regardless :)

    Jason, dim sum is actually not a single dish that you order. It's a variety of small dishes (see picture posted by V.C. in her announcement - that's what it looks like). Depending on the restaurant they may push a cart through and have you choose what you want off the cart. You can wiki: "dim sum" for more info on it.

    I guess one time will not hurt. I think I have been to this restaurant before and they have a variety of different things. Is dimsum required? I may still get it just because I don't think I've had that before.

    I called and the official word is that no, they DO NOT have MSG-free dimsum dishes. Anyone else who is sensitive to MSG may want to take note of this...

    I'm going to opt out of this. I'm the one with a problem, no one else, and there's a Waiting List... Enjoy yourselves! I'll see you all at another Meetup.

    H - I replied directly to your e-mail address.

    VC - Thanks, I appreciate it. It's fine if they can't do it. I know Jason and I are probably in the minority here. I laughed to see two people show up on the waiting list today. I'll wait to hear from you.

    Please do, as I would be interested in knowing if they are MSG-free too.

    July 7, 2010

    Amy, I don't know if they have MSG-free dimsum dishes (their regular menu ), but I can ask.

    H, I don't mind picking you up from the Vienna Metro. My car is old, but it runs.

    V.C., I noticed that the menu says they can accommodate "no MSG" requests - so can we make sure to do that? I'm highly allergic to MSG. If there are objections, I don't mind giving someone else my spot. Thanks.

    You have an extra slash:
    http://www.orientaleast.com/dimsum/index.html/

    It will give you a 404 error: File Not Found.

    It should be:http://www.orientaleast.com/dimsum/index.html

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
