CHEF REYNADUONG PRESENTS CHIMLANH
DALLAS' FIRST VIETNAMESE CÀ PHÊ SHOP
chimlanh DALLAS' FIRST VIETNAMESE CÀ PHÊ SHOP NESTLED AT SANDWICH HAG
Proudly opening chimlanh as the first Vietnamese coffee shop in Dallas proper has been a quiet dream that came to life in January 2023. I wanted to evolve what we've built with Sandwich Hag over the years, by way of traditional Phin drip brewed cà phê, commUnity, and pastries.
A safe space for our commUnity to start their mornings, of all ages and genders. A cà phê shop that supports and amplifies people with disabilities, all while uplifting women and Black-owned businesses through mutually beneficial partnerships ONLY.
I wouldn't be me if I didn't take this opportunity to tell you the reason why I chose the name chimlanh, which is actually two words that I connected as one to signify holding of hands, a show of unity. Chim means bird anddd it is also an endearing name for pussy.
Our patriarch has fooled us all into thinking that pussies are weak, so much so that even us women use this term as an insult.
Yet, there is nothing weak about our muscular canal and the most powerful organ that puts 99.99% of the work into creating all of humanity. Lanh means witty. Witty Pussy.
chimlanh is a reclamation of a powerful sisterhood.
Cảm ơn bạn rất nhiều!
