Another Yummy House coming to Tampa

It seems Yummy House is so popular the owner plans a second location on E. Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa, and is thinking about a third, in Sarasota. I'm a China Yuan loyalist myself, but this is great news for lovers of real Chinese food.

  1. How about a location in St. Pete!

    1. I heard rumors a while back. especialy great news for people living in east seminole heights. with the exception of the Taco Bus, East Hillsborough is a wasteland of chains, bad gyros, etc. I hear it will be somewhere near the sanwa market.

        ??? i'm so confused!!! isn't ella's and the refinery in seminole heights, right near the taco bus?

          They are West of 275 so they do not fall in the E Hillsborough designation ;-)

      2. We initially thought they were moving, discovered last weekend it's a second restaurant. Good for them!

        1. Rock and roll, love yummy house. why on earth they're opening the second location 5 minutes from the first I don't know, but happy to see them expand.

            I haven't been in there yet to talk to them about that...

          2. Good for them! It goes to show you that if you produce a good product at a low price, people will come, even in this horrible economy.

            On the down side, I am reminded of Anthony Bourdain's comments in "Kitchen Confidential" about owners who expand. The expansion sometimes fails and its failure brings down (financially) the formerly successful original location, as well. But I guess it's a case of "nothing ventured, nothing gained" and "a faint heart never won fair maiden" and "Sure, the game is rigged, but you can't win if you don't bet."

            Anyway, I wish them luck. We certainly could use more excellent Chinese restaurants in this area.
