This quaint dining spot cooks up all the classic Asian dishes you'll need to tame the inner beast who demands fast, greasy food.
Walk inside and you'll notice a large fish-tank absent of fish. It provides for an eerie setting, especially against the pale-yellow walls and red faux patent-leather seats. The dining room is almost always deserted, yet it still exists for those ready to brave the restaurant's humidity, which will force you to peel yourself off the chairs at meal's end.
Traditionally, most people opt for take-out. Yummy has everything: appetizers like crab rangoon ($3.95), yang chow wonton soup (wonton, shrimp, chicken, and vegetables for $4.55), spicy Ma Po tofu (stir-fried beef curd with minced pork and onion for $6.95) and an array of other Cantonese dishes. Szechwan and Hunan specials are available, including kung po shrimp glazed in a spicy Szechwan sauce ($9.45).
One of Yummy's specialties is called Thai crazy noodles, which includes peapods, onions, tomato, and basil leaves in an oriental sauce for only $6.95. Don't be overly liberal with your ordering; portions are so large that if you overshoot, you'll be wrestling the left-overs with chopsticks for the next week.
Average cost: <$10
