Tai Wu Mr. Fong’s Restaurant
My eyes are certainly bigger then my stomach.
Happy Friday, everyone! Hope everyone is prepared for the long extended weekend! I know my belly is.
Woke up this morning craving Cantonese style abalone jook aka congee. Decided to venture somewhere close by that we have never been before. Tai Wu Mr. Fong’s Restaurant it is! Open at 11am tucked, away in a tight plaza where parking can be tight and the fog is always looming over us. The food is slightly above average. This place has an attentive staff with good value for the food being served. I should come back during dinner and experience their $15 peking duck special.
Somehow we ended up ordering what feels like everything except for jook! Feast your eyes out on my early afternoon selection!
Dim sum refers to a style of Cantonese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. Dim sum is also well known for the unique way it is served in some restaurants, whereby fully cooked and ready-to-serve dim sum dishes are carted around the restaurant for customers to choose their orders while seated at their tables. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dim_sum

Crab King Siu Mai – Good but couldn’t tell there was crab in it
Fried Pumpkin with Salty Egg – aka Crack was a good value but not enough intensity in flavor
