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.
