Yan China Bistro’s owners now operating Fantasy Island
By STACEY MARCUS
When Karen and Roger Lin moved to the United States from Southern China 21 years ago, the young couple worked together at a Chinese restaurant in Arlington. Roger honed his cooking skills in the kitchen while Karen worked in the front of the restaurant learning about operations and customer service. Six years later, they found a spot on Lewis Street in Lynn and opened Yan’s Cafe, a takeout restaurant featuring Chinese and Vietnamese favorites.
