Cho's, beloved dim sum spot, to reopen in Los Altos

Uploaded: Dec 12, 2014

New information on Cho's in Los Altos has been posted here.

Palo Altans' favorite hole-in-the-wall dim sum spot Cho's Mandarin Dim Sum, which closed earlier this year after receiving a sudden 60-day notice from the landlord, is being resurrected in downtown Los Altos.

The restaurant, which sold potstickers, pork buns and the like on the cheap for 35 years at 213 California Ave., announced the news on its Facebook page today, Dec. 12.

"Something new is coming to Los Altos," the post reads, with a photograph of the new restaurant at 209 1st St. According to Yelp, the space was most recently occupied by Chris' Fish and Chips and is near the corner of State Street.

The 2,337 people who signed a Change.org petition to keep Cho's open on California Avenue will surely be over as soon as they open.

No immediate word from owners Cho and Daisy Yu; stay tuned for further details.

University Arts moved to Redwood City and now another great "Palo Alto" treasure moves away; this time to Los Altos.

Cheap yes. But I can also take frozen dim sum out of my freezer just like Cho does, and then throw it in the steamer or frying pan.
