Date: Thursday May 3rd 2018
My favorite dishes: Wonton soup + chow mein
So I’ve pretty much been coming to Fung Shing with my family for as long as I can remember and so its definitely one of my favorite Chinese restaurants, if not my all-time favorite. There’s just something about those sun-faded pink curtains I guess haha.
I’ve eaten a bunch of different things from Fung Shing, from wonton soup to egg rolls and sweet and sour pork to Cantonese style chow mein, you name it. In recent times, I’ve basically gotten wonton soups loaded up with noodles, vegetables, pork, shrimps and chicken. For about $10 a bowl, its quite a hefty, filling and delicious meal. I love that their wontons are shrimp based, but I have to say, they used to be better (perhaps they had more shrimp in them?).
Besides wonton soup, I love their Cantonese style chow meins. Similarly to their wonton soups, these too are loaded up with noodles, vegetables, seafood and meats; and this garlicky clear sauce with is amazing.
This post isn’t really about a particular visit to Fung Shing, its more to show my appreciation and to hopefully let others discover it as well 😀 So here is my review and some photos of Fung Shing!
I have my own criteria when it comes to reviewing restaurants, which I also use on my Instagram account (@elisebgravel). It’s very simple, there are only three points: the quality of the food (on 10), the price (from $ to $$$$$) and the following question: would I go back?
So, here is my review of Fung Shing:
Food: 5/5 (excellent)
Would I go back?: Yes! Its my go-to restaurant for Chinese food.
