Sunny Shanghai in San Bruno RIP
Tonight I had a desire for some XLB since Ihave not had any for a while (Since CNY) and wanted some.
I was shocked that I saw something in it place.
This seem to be a BBQ Beijing style. Serving sticks of meats.
The BBQ was like that I had in Beijing itself. Crispy, Burnt (in good way) I had a selection of beef, lamb and chicken. It was good.
We had dumplings and red cooked beef noodles.
I was less that impressed with the noodles and dumplings. But the sticks of meat was something I would returned too. I think this a eatery like some places in Northern China where people drink beer and eat meat.
I did read that the old owners had to sell do to poor health and reopen in the East Bay later. This was reported on Yelp. Hope others in the East Bay be on the look out.
is the name still Sunny Shanghai?
something doesn't add up. family health problems forces them to sell. their health will improve in a few months. will reopen in the bay area.
-sounds like a prospective new competitor is coming to san bruno or nearby.........
(or biz slow and they're getting out of the area)
-oh, liked their xlb, one of the early ones i've tried.
re: Civil Bear
Little Yangon doubles as a sushi kitchen for supermarkets. While there haven't been many customers in the restaurant on my weekday visits, my sense is that the owner is a fairly savvy businesswoman and has figured out ways to do OK. Suspect the rent is not so high in that neighborhood, which probably helps.
