Sushi Bar in Texas Prepares 1,000 Meals to Aid Victims of Hurricane Harvey
A heartwarming post about a restaurant in Southeast Texas is going viral after showing its owners preparing 1,000 meals for those affected by the devastation of hurricane Harvey. Keith Nguyen took to social media to spread the good cause that his dad, Phe Nguyen, and uncle, Binh Nguyen, have tirelessly been working on in their restaurant located in Port Arthur, Texas.
In Nguyen’s Facebook post, he revealed that both his dad and uncle were also impacted by the disastrous effects of Harvey but mentioned that the media wasn’t likely to cover their plight. In order to address the food shortages in the area, his dad and uncle have gathered their staff and some volunteers to cook-up a whopping 1,000 meals for those in need.
“My dad and uncle Binh own a restaurant in Southeast Texas and they were also effected by Harvey but the media doesn’t cover it. Today them, their staff and volunteers helped create over 1000 meals for victims, first responders, and other volunteers.
My dad and uncle are both very humble about it but I believe they at least deserves recognition and appreciation for everything that they do. Their restaurant is Sake Sushi Bar and Lounge in Port Arthur, Tx.
If you’re ever in the area you should stop by and support this hard working man, or even share their good deed on facebook. They deserves it.”
Facebook users had a unanimously positive response to Nguyen’s post and it immediately went viral, garnering 35,000 likes and over 25,000 shares.
The majority of those who commented on Nguyen’s heartwarming post showered their family with praise and applauded them for their selfless display of love and kindness. It’s no exaggeration that social media users are describing the Nguyens as heroes, given their tremendous efforts to alleviate hunger during a dire time.
According to the restaurant’s Yelp page, Sake Sushi Bar & Lounge is highly rated, touted not just for their good food but for their great service as well. However, not everyone would have expected that the restaurant’s great food and service even extends outside of business hours.
Even with the restaurant’s success prior to the devastating flood, they still show excellent service, not just to customers but also to their dear community. The hard workers at Sake Sushi Bar & Lounge truly deserve appreciation for fighting the good fight.
