Yum Cha Cafe May Be Coming to Bay Area

Some of you may be familiar with the Yum Cha Cafe chain in the L.A. area. They offer value priced take out dim sum ($1.45 per order) and other items such as jook (about $3.60) and noodle soup (about $3.80) which are of surprisingly decent quality. BBQ case items, too. The puzzle is that most of their locations are attached to Shun Fat Supermarket locations, which aren't prevalent in the Bay Area, though there are some other locations, too. If you see one of these pop up I'd be curious about where they are locating.
I'll keep an eye out at the Shun Fat supermarket in San Pablo ....... it used to have an in house ? dim sum and hot food operation there back when they opened.
Well stop by the new San Jose store day and the deli was open. It had a soft opening a few days ago and the staff was running around trying to get there act together so I did not have high hopes for the food during this period. It was decent but I think King Egg Roll has better stuff. Bu that may change. It is not a Yum Cha Cafe. It seems to SF production.
Will return later to check out the BBQ items.
Returned a month after the soft opening. The food at the steam tables looked really good but still lack the great taste to match it looks. Did not try the BBQ items. All things considered I like shopping at the meat department for it cuts of meat. Give a dollar coupon for each 20 dollars spent. But will not make it a stop for it cooked items for now.
