I LOVE You Ranch 99!
When we first moved here to Antioch, we were very happy to find a small Chinese grocery store in Concord. I would make regular trips to stock up on our chinese groceries. But then I was so happy when a "County Square Market" chinese grocery store opened up in Pleasant Hill. It was FAR larger than the other store. I thought I was in heaven! Imagine my elation when they opened a County Square Market in Antioch! I could go any time, and was able to cook our favorite chinese food more often. Well, the owners of the rented space decided they wanted to sell the property, so kicked County Square out. I was REALLY disappointed. It's back to driving over the hill to get chinese groceries. But a couple of weeks ago we discovered that they opened a Ranch 99 Chinese grocery store in Concord! This is the best chinese store I've ever been to! They even have freshly made Chinese snacks (like potstickers, pork buns, Shau Mai etc.) for sale. We have been there several times already to buy the fresh made snacks. I'm crossing my fingers hoping that eventually they will open a Ranch 99 out our way. And in saying that, I realize I am very spoiled because if I moved out of state, I wouldn't have any of these stores available to me. But I'm sure going to enjoy them while I can!
