Yummy House - Orlando (Altamonte Springs)

ltlevy | Jun 25, 201506:29 PM

My DW and I and another couple went to the new Yummy House in Altamonte Springs. Sad to say we won't be returning.

We've been to the original Yummy House in Tampa, and loved it. We have gone to the one in Gainesville for dim sum and found it unmemorable. And we went to the one in Ocala, for dinner, and found everything too, too sweet.

The new one in Altamonte also serves food much too sweet. We ordered the West Lake Beef Soup, Roast Pork, Beef Chow Fun, Clams in Black Bean Sauce, a spicy tofu casserole, and Kung Po Shrimp. Not one of those dishes would I recommend. In fact, we had lots of left overs and none of us were interested in taking anything home.

The shrimp in the casserole and the Kung Po were translucent. At first I thought they weren't cooked through, but when we cut them open it was cooked. They just didn't have any flavor. The beef in the Chow Fun was also not good. Tasted like it was tenderized.

The knife skills were non existent,the Kung Po had WHOLE water chestnuts in it. Not what I would expect for a dish that is supposed to be diced!

One of these days we need to get back to the one in Tampa to see if the original is still as good as we remember.
