Putting "Yummy" in your restaurant’s name begs extra scrutiny, but Yummy House manages to live up to its billing. The menu covers Pan-Chinese territory, with Beijing–trained chef Eric Wong equally adept at Cantonese, Shanghai, and Sichuan cuisine. Hot-and-sour soup comes thick with mushrooms in a dark broth with an appealing smoky flavor. A chicken with spinach soup is blander, but the large clump of its signature veggie is market fresh. Noodles are popular choices, with a huge array of soups on top of chow fun served with black beans, green peppers, and tender beef. Among the chef’s specials, chicken in peach flavor is the stand out. The breading is crisp and the sauce sports a not-too-sweet fruity finish. As for the square space’s décor, it’s pretty unobtrusive: glass-topped wooden tables nestled near purple walls beneath a ceiling of mint-green acoustic tiles.

Extra

Daily lunch specials deliver generous portions at ultrareasonable prices.
