Getting to Know... Yummy Yummy Restaurant

"Getting to Know..." is the first in what I hope to be a series of examinations of local businesses all worth a visit! First-Yummy Yummy Restaurant!

I'm switching things up a little with a string of pieces I'm going to call "Getting to Know...", where I'll be spotlighting local businesses that I enjoy a great deal or think could stand to get a little more attention. To kick things off, I decided to sit down and talk with Jay Fu, supervisor of Yummy Yummy Restaurant, home of delicious Chinese quisine!

For the past four years, Yummy Yummy has been serving their delicious food to the community. Jay says that the restaurant is family owned, a fact they try to convey through the quality and quantity of their food. Jay is well aware of the troubled financial times we all live in and believes that the value they offer is a way of giving back to their customers. "San Leandrans are good people", Jay said when I asked what he loves about our city as a place to work.

One thing that helps set Yummy Yummy apart from the crowd is that the prices are fair and you always get a heaping portion of whatever you order. A solid selection of items doesn't hurt, either. I asked Jay what he considers a standout on their menu, to which he very proudly responded "the General's Chicken, and the Honey Walnut Prawns". Yummy Yummy is a rare retaurants that will deliver the soup when you order a lunch special for delivery, as opposed to only offering it when you dine-in. It's these little touches, along with their speedy deliveries (as noted by lovely server Evelyn Xiao!), that demonstrate the restaurant's committment to providing an excellent dining experience.

Before I stepped out, Jay and I chatted about the new regulations regarding food containers. He felt that it's a good idea to shift to the more eco-friendly varieties, but that the restrictions should be widespread and not limited to single cities. I shared his sentiment, and also feel that when making changes like this that the city should do something to help ease the burden of buying the more expensive containers. It doesn't seem right for city governments to force changes without taking some sort of measure to balance things with the businesses.

I thank Jay and Evelyn for taking the time to talk with me, and hope that people will find their way to Yummy Yummy for a bite to eat!

Yummy Yummy Restaurant is located at 794 East 14th Street, right across from cit hall. Open 7 days a week, 11AM to 9:30PM. Jay recommends ordering over the phone so you can take advantage of their coupons. 510/382-0777.
