Review of Yummy House in Arcadia

raytamsgv | Aug 6, 2014 05:06 PM

Yummy House touts itself as serving organic food prepared Hong Kong style. My review is short because we had only three dishes: hot & sour soup, Singapore noodles, and satay beef.

I was not impressed. The hot & sour soup lacked depth. It was hot and sour but not much else. The Singapore noodles were decent, but I've had better at other Hong Kong style restaurants. The satay beef was a disappointment. The beef was tenderized way too much. It was not recognizable as beef. There was too much satay sauce--it overwhelmed the dish.

The shortcomings are not because the ingredients are organic. I actually cook with home-grown organic veggies. The seasonings weren't done correctly. Perhaps other dishes would have been better. I wanted to like the restaurant, but I couldn't. Restaurants need to make a good first impression. Otherwise, customers won't have a motive to return.
