Yummy opens on 11th avenue


It’s a traditional Asian ‘Chinese’ eatery and the opening is happening now.  The management was very relucltant to allow us to list the restaurant as they want to keep things 100% traditional.  Which is what we love, authentic cuisine that comes from the heart.  Yummy is bringing a little bit of Sunset Park – to Dyker Heights, prices and a great selection.
