Dear Loyal Patrons:

We were forced to close, temporarily, due to the permits and licenses needed for us to operate. There are many new rules & regulations in regards of operating a mobile food business, many of which we were unaware of. We will be closed for as long as it takes us to make the necessary changes in order to comply with everything.

The majority of the issues we have to fix are pertaining to the fact that we are classified as a Mobile Food Business. For us to NOT be considered Mobile we would have to be connected to the building’s (Vanderbilt Hall) running water & sewage. Ever since the last time we were closed (March 2014 – June 2014) we have made several requests to the powers that be to consider allowing us to do so. As you can see that never happened. In order to make things work we had to get a mobile water tank & grey water tank. This has made everything much more difficult and we want to change it for the betterment of Sami’s.


  • Try to change the minds of those in charge so we may connect to their plumbing
  • Raise money needed to make it happen


  • Being hard-plumbed makes permanent fixture
  • Permanent fixtures are easier to operate in regards all the rules & regulations
  • The easier we operate, the easier we can serve you

If you support Sami’s and want to see it literally become the landmark that we have become then we implore to sign our petition.

Sincerely yours,

Amy & Jou-jou

PS: since we’re closed we have no income. Additionally, many of the issues that need to be fixed cost a lot of money. We humbly ask for your assistance during this troubling time. Any donation at all is greatly appreciated.
