Foo Chow Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Jackie Chan's “Rush Hour” was shot here. If somehow you forget this bit of trivia, the mural out front will remind you. At Foo Chow, a large menu starts with small plates like oyster cakes, salted half duck and fried wontons, before moving into the entrées. You can get your fill of kung pao chicken and sesame beef, as well as sweet shrimp with glazed walnuts and salted fried spare-ribs. But you'll be missing the subplot of the place since the Foo Chow "special style" section of the menu really steals the show. It has many interesting characters like lamb with a seasonal red wine sauce soup, deep-fried crispy boneless eel, crab with scrambled eggs, and fried jellyfish and meat. There is a limited selection of wines and beers to accompany your meal.

Terrible food
by exotic on Sat Mar 24, 2012 9:59 pm
 
Had some military personnel from out of town who insisted on going to china town, why i do not know the place is a dump. The food here was the worst i have had in a long, long time. we had to seat our selves, the waiter came about 30mins later as we were about to leave, the rice and noodles were served we didn't see the waiter for another 30mins before bringing the main meal. and boy was it terrible, the bokchoy was raw ended up with a buzzing stomach. the orange chicken i dumped in the trash, the barbqued meat was dry and hard. we were so disappointed. oh no drinks he forgot about us, food is horrible, service is terrible, staff attitudes is unimaginable, the place is a dump, prices are too high. please check reviews out before dining. it really helps. we didn't
