sounds like a beautiful relationship.


I love the very 1st vege plate you have. I can eat all of that by myself.


Hi Ed! Your friends are very lucky! The feast looks absolutely delicious. I love egg plant dishes and I noticed that the dish you had, the peel has been removed. I find that unless they are the tender Japanese eggplant, the peel is very hard and sometimes bitter. Tofu and mushrooms, a great combo. I can almost smell them...

RONW - Several times in my life, I have had a real relationship with a restaurant which has profited both of us - though in different ways. In a small town like Yuma, Yummy Yummy is for me an oasis of interesting food in a literal desert.

nhbilly - Yeh I ate all that on choi. I wish I had been able to buy some for our feast.

Carol - thanks. The food at YY always tastes better than it looks - particularly in those pictures. The fried tofu there is always really well prepared and that combo with the mushrooms was just sinfully good.

^_^ I'm glad to see that chinese food in another country looked and prepared just the way it's supposed to look and taste. A sigh of relief.

But seeing all these chinese food made me cringe as it felt so common and boring. Well, that's what you get when you're a chinese right? >_<

Nicholas - Mary's family are from Guangdong, and after living in Mexicali for a while, they moved to my small town. They do know how to do things correctly.

You are also right that this is fairly simple food - certainly would be boring to someone in China or in a major US city with a large Cantonese population. But let me assure you, out here on the Mexican border in the desert, this is exciting food for us locals.


looks so good!

would you e-mail me re: the route to Yuma? Is 86 a freeway or divided highway? wiki says 'muy peligroso'

thanks for all your help in our trip planning. much appreciated!
