  • 7

Went by to see if the HK Supermarket is open...picked up the menus for the recently opened Yi Mei.

  1. Is that the entire menu? It seems very limited.

      Yes, that's the whole menu. When I was there last weekend, they also had frozen dumplings and XLB for sale.

    2. FWIW, this is by the management of the RowHts location, which is related, but NOT the same as the ex-Monterey Park Yi Mei, now Huge Tree.

      Supposedly, whatever RowHts is serving, you can get it at Monrovia. Speaking of Monrovia, it's the next Arcadia. It's happening and it's much more convincing than West Covina becoming the next SGV.

        agreed. Not sure the west covina push is worth all the effort.

          Yeah that HK Market plaza change seemed to have happened overnight. Not sure about West Covina, I'd like to see some demographic numbers to see any trending shifts. I think Monrovia is a no-brainer since people want to live in a nice neighborhood and Monrovia has some really nice pockets albeit some bad ones as well.

          Yup....I was chatting with the huge ee folks and they confirmed that they only have one shop. (recently discovered there's one in Vegas, too called "yi mei champion deli", which had probably the most luscious guabao I've ever tasted, and a fantuan w/ suan tsai to die for).

          Incidently my Lovely Tasting Assistant tells me there are Yi meis all over Taiwan, and they're all either semi or not related, and they all serve breakfast.

        3. Anybody know how the San Gabriel location fits in? They were originally called Yi Mei, then changed to Yee May a few years ago. Originally related to Rowland Heights, or an impostor?
