You can find good, authentic Cantonese food at Yummy House in Tampa. The original Yummy’s on Waters Avenue in north Tampa remains a favorite neighborhood Chinese restaurantof its regular customers and tourists. Over the past 3 years, Yummy House has opened a larger restaurant on East Hillsborough, Yummy House China Bistro, which also serves Dim Sum and YH restaurants in Gainesville, Ocala and Sarasota, Florida.
Yummy House offers a sweetheart of a Chinese food deal with its “Pick 3 dishes for $22.00” menu when dining in or ordering take-out. Ask your server about it. Above, we ordered the Salted Fish and EggPlant in a pot, 1/2 Hong Kong Soy Sauce Chicken and Yang Chow Fried Rice from the Pick 3 menu. It’s plenty of Chinese food for 2 people. Add another dish and you can feed a family of 4. We visited Yummy House on Waters around 5 p.m. Friday recently and ordered the Salt and Pepper Grouper without the hot spices. It was delicious, but if you like “the heat,” order the restaurant’s popular Salt and Pepper Fried Calamari. Many customers also order Yummy’s Beef with Broccoli.
The Soy Sauce Chicken had a little too much licorice for our taste, but the Salted Fish and Eggplant, House Fried Rice and Yang Chow Fried Rice were good to satisfy anyone’s appetite for Chinese soul food. The eggplant dish we ordered had too much ginger, but overall was good. Our bill including a pot of hot tea and water for the Pick 3 came to $23 including tax. We also recommend the 1/2 Hong Kong steamed ginger/scallion chicken, braised tofu with vegetables and many other dishes on the menu. The dishes on the “Pick 3” menu range from $8.50 to $14 each and include seafood, beef, chicken, pork, vegetable, noodle, rice and tofu dishes.
Yummy House also has Roast Duck, Peking Duck and Chinese barbeque. Yummy House is open 7 days a week: 11 a.m. -3 p.m. and 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. The original Yummy House restaurant is located at 2202 W.
