Note to self: never go to a Yum Cha Cafe at the height of lunch hour. However, if some guy tries to cut in front of you, speak very boldly to him in perfect English, and then once he gets back behind you in line, place your order in perfect Cantonese. Hahahahha
My first trip to a YCC, unbelievable but true. Too much pain to find parking in Chinatown, and I never go to the Shun Fat plaza in Monterey Park, and never even knew about the San Gabriel one.
Wonton noodle soup: $3.39. Wonton is all shrimp, and just the right small size. It’s a pretty big bowl of wonton noodles for a little over $3. And it’s pretty good. Def not the best, but great for the price.
Pan fried chicken bao: 3 for $1.39 or was it 99 cents. They were cold, and it was a very thin layer of chicken. But hey for that price, it’s all good.
They have a huge menu for this small joint, 99 cents, $1.39, and $3.39. Dim sum, noodles, jook, sweets. And a bunch of roast chicken and duck dishes at higher prices, but still cheap. Decent food at really cheap prices, it’s a great deal.
