Thanks for posting this. Had to leave just as this story began on KPCC this AM. No brown sauce? It’s about time.
And who remembers the Yan Can chain?
I went to the one in Pleasant Hill when it first opened during a drive from Oakland to Concord.
All of us really enjoyed the fortune cookies. And the bathrooms.
He also once had a sit down in Foster City, but when I drove up it was out of business. Then one of the Yan Can locations opened up in Oxnard, so I went by there the first chance I got, but it had already closed. Eventually I made it to the Yan Can location in Santa Clara. Had the chicken dumplings. Quite possibly the worst I’ve ever eaten.
Should’ve stuck to the fortune cookies.
