Main Line’s Yangming Closed Due to Roaches


yangming-exteriorThe Main Line Times has the details about Bryn Mawr’s Yangming being shut down because of an “active infestation” of roaches. The ordeal began on Friday when a child received not one but two dishes of Thai noodles that contained roaches in them.

The family of the girl demanded to see a manager but were not placated by offers of free lunch and gift certificates. The restaurant then called the police on the customers (never call the police when there is an active infestation of roaches in your kitchen). The police responded, witnessed the roaches and closed the restaurant. Superintendent William Colarulo told the Main Line Times, the bugs were “all over the place.”

The restaurant reopened later on Friday, but an inspection by the township health officer occurred today and the patrons were being turned away at lunch time. A call to the restaurant went unanswered this afternoon.

In 2011, Yangming won an award as best Chinese restaurant in America.
