Posted this in the Man Fook Lo thread, but thought it might also deserve its own thread, as I don't think I've found its own thread on Chowhound.
My brother and I checked out Fu Wing Low for lunch yesterday. Definitely no dim sum carts. I think they had siu mai as an appetizer, but that's about it.
Ordered our standard of chicken chow mein Hong Kong style, beef chow fun, and won ton soup.
The won ton was a bit lacking, being very small and only served 5 pieces, in comparison to our favorites at Sam Woo or SW Seafood, where we get huge shrimp-stuffed won ton, 6 to 8 of them usually.
The chicken chow mein, Hong Kong style meaning crispy noodles, was pretty good, but it was a bit different being served with the thicker bigger noddles instead of the thinner vermicelli-sized noddles, which is usually the norm. Tasted pretty good, large amounts of chicken & veggies.
The beef chow fun was also good, but it seem to lack a bit of soy sauce or something, as it was a bit drier and less oily than what we usually get. Good but not great.
Overall, I'm not sure if we'll go back for lunch, as Sam Woo and SW Seafood are better overall in food quality. $22 for the two of us for the 3 dishes.
We may go back to try it for dinner, as some items looked interesting, and prices were very reasonable.
Closed on Mondays.
