Better than ususal bowl of beef noodle soup at Fortune Garden

Wendy Lai | Jan 4, 200503:13 PM     1

Yesterday I visited Fortune Garden in Union City (a few doors down from China Tofu and Marina Food) and found it to be a pleasant surprise.

The menu is mostly Shanghai style food. They said their speciality is xiao long bau, beef noodle soup, and potstickers. I ordered the first two items. The xiao long bau isn't as great as the Shanghai Dumpling shop in SF, but it's pretty good. Pipping hot and with a thin wrapper and a nice juicy filling.

The beef noodle soup can possible be the best one I've had in the bay area so far. The broth and beef were both good, AND the noodles were the hand-pull kind, chewy and al dente. I'd say for others looking for a good bowl (the Taiwanese style) of beef noodle, to give Fotune Garden a try. I think this place is way better than China tofu.

The restaurant was pretty full at around noon time on Monday, all Mandrin speaking Chinese folks.
