Mee Yee Lin was once the town's best dim sum restaurant. But then competitors -- including the surprisingly good Super Star Asian -- moved into the neighborhood, and Mee Yee Lin moved from its original home at 3090 West Alameda Avenue to a much bigger spot at 2295 South Chambers in Aurora. The food was never as good there, though, and that space is now home to El Viva Villa.
And Mee Yee Lin's first spot, just west of Federal, has become Fritangas, another Mexican joint that last year migrated south from 2505 Federal Boulevard. That space is again empty -- but don't look for Mee Yee Lin to move in.
