Old Fashioned Roasted Sweet Potato in Santa Clara

tanspace | Apr 25, 200703:31 PM     13

Just a heads up on the last chance this season to get the old fashionedh roasted sweet yam in Santa Clara.

I had not expected to taste it again in the US until I found that there’s a place that makes it in Santa Clara. There’s a one-man operation that roasts these yams in an old-style oven right in front of the Galleria Korean market at NE intersection of Lawrence & El Camino Real. He is an ethnic Korean who lived in China and can speak both Korean and Chinese. The yams sell for $2 for 3 (or more) pieces. Usually he gives me 4 pieces.

The bad news is that if you want to try this old fashioned home style treat, he will only be here until end of April, before the weather starts getting hot. If you miss him this time around, you will have to come back in November when he’ll be back to set up shop to offer these hot, baked treats again for the coming cold winter.
