Fat Wong's - San Bruno - Report

Dave MP | Oct 28, 201301:11 PM

A year after getting the recommendation, I finally tried Fat Wong's in San Bruno on Saturday. Went at about 12:00 noon and the wait wasn't too long for 2 of us. We ended up sharing a table w/ two other parties of 2, which was fine with us.

I wanted to try their cheong fun after reading about it here:

We ordered:

Cheong fun w/ char siu - I found this a tad greasy, and would probably skip in the future. The shrimp cheong fun that our neighbors got looked better. The noodles themselves were fine. I'd say above average, and not much difference from a place like Cooking Papa. But not extraordinary, either.

Cheong fun w/ duck meat - Also a bit greasy, but better than the pork. I liked the crispy bits in this. Still, I think in the future I'll stick to beef or shrimp filling.

Chinese broccoli w/ oyster sauce - Small dim-sum sized portion was good for us, and the veggie was cooked to a perfect doneness for me. Pretty plain and simple, but well executed.

Braised beef brisket - This was recommended on Yelp, so we gave it a try. The brisket was tender, and the sauce was pretty mild. Served over some turnip which I enjoyed. So, not earth-shattering, but pretty good.

Service was fine, total bill was about $20 and we left feeling pretty full (though not stuffed). A nice alternative to dim sum.
