The Kitchen Opens Up In Southern California

Chandavkl | Dec 15, 2006 08:05 PM

The Kitchen, the upscale Hong Kong style restaurant out of Millbrae in the Bay Area has opened up in Alhambra at 203 W. Valley Blvd., in the location occupied for many years by Jumbo Seafood and more recently NYC Jumbo. The Kitchen serves dim sum at lunchtime (actually opening at 9 am) and is in mix for the upscale dim sum crowd with Triumphal Palace, New Concept, Mission 261, Sea Harbour etc. Actually dim sum service is hybrid, with one or two carts circulating along with a few trays, with patrons also ordering off the menu. Unfortunately the menu is in Chinese only so if you're like me and don't read Chinese you either have to ask for translations or stick with whatever circulates. Food is kind of pricey--A, B, and C dim sum are roughly $1.90, $2.80 and $3.80, and almost nothing on the dinner menu is under $10. As with the Millbrae location, many innovative items populate the dinner menu. The Alhambra branch doesn't open quite as late as the Millbrae location, closing at midnight. The Kitchen in Millbrae is one of the very best Chinese restaurants in the Bay Area, so I think we're in for a treat.
