Utopia Cafe under new management?
I mentioned this a couple of months ago but it was pooh-poohed by someone who knew someone in the family that owned it. The old owner, Winnie Leung, also owns the much bigger Imperial Palace on Washington Street, and it may be getting all her attention.
re: Xiao Yang
Well, as we both know until you see a posting of change of owners things can change. Maybe Winnie wanted to keep both a few months ago or did not tell her son.
I had heard when Golden Gate Bakery was for sale and had offers. But that fell apart. Speaking of GGB the lines are short or not at all recently. I have been told by a couple fan of there Dan Tart it is not the same.
I am interested what the names of the new owners. So if you are in the area would post them, I did not read them on Saturday and will not be in the City for a while.
Had lunch there yesterday and yes there is new ownership. But the cooks and wait staff remains the same. But new dishes have been added.
The cooking style and taste is the same.
Just new owners.
We had the following
Taro root duck (not roasted duck but preserved duck) the taro was wonderful
Three ingredients chow rice stick noodles
Fresh mushrooms over spinach (king oyster and shitake)
Steamed chicken with golden needles and wood ears
Deep Fried Pork Big Intestines (yes Chowfun you favorite)
Soup of the day Ching Po Laing.
Cost for four under 50 before tip.
