Fung Fung Yuen

I visited this building a few times a year whenever Hometown Buffet mailed me a good coupon.  The lines were long when it first opened.  I miss the fried chicken from Hometown Buffet.

It’s alot fancier now they have transformed into Fung Fung Yuen.  I came with the family and lots of dishes were ordered.

Har gow was hot and fresh with mild flavor from the wrapper and a nice shrimp flavor from the filling.
Sticky rice had nice flavors from the leaves and the marinated pork.
Shrimp pan fried noodles had crunchy noodles and savory flavors from the sauce.  Shrimp were plump, juicy and full of shrimp flavor.  I would have liked a higher shrimp to noodle ratio.
Bbq pork buns had a high bun to bbq pork ratio.  Bbq pork had delicious flavor but there wasn’t enough to fill the bun.
Rice cakes had a sweet flavor and texture like a thick jello.  I usually get this dish at Jasmine and it taste similar.
Seafood fried rice.  The shrimp and fried rice had good flavor.  There were some other types of seafood in the rice I didn’t eat.
Bbq pork fried rice was my fav fried rice here.  Loved the flavor front the eggs, green onions, shrimp, and bbq pork.  Tender bbq pork had rich flavor and is among the best in town.
Won ton soup featured pork and shrimp won tons.  Broth had nice subtle flavors.  I loved the flavors from the pork and shrimp won tons.
Chicken pan fried noodles featured very tender nicely marinated chicken.  Egg noodles were crunchy and I loved the savory flavors from the gravy.  This dish tasted great but I would have liked a higher chicken to noodle ratio.
Peppery beef featured very tender and juicy beef.  Loved the black pepper and beef flavors.
Fried chicken wings were crunchy and tasted much like the salt and pepper wings from Golden Chopsticks.  I loved the flavor but I think they used too much msg as I needed a drink really bad when I got to the car after eating an entire plate of the wings.
Loose leaf jasmine tea.


I love the jasmine tea as many of the places I go only have average tea.  Flavor is really fresh and rich.
I had a chance to watch while they made sui mei my first visit.

Ready to cook siu mei.
Fung Fun Yuen has lots of great dishes and the service was very good.  Hope Hong Kong BBQ which is located in the same mall stays in business…

  1. We sure had a nice visit with the family! Lovely detailed descriptions of each dish paired with beautiful clear pictures. Makes me want to go back and order more food.

    1. It’s cool going with the family and trying lots of dishes. We should go and order lots of food!

  2. What a feast! Was it a long wait? It’s so nice to see pics of them actually making dim sum (we weren’t sure on our last visit as some of the dim sum dishes were questionable).

    1. Totally agree, all types of dumplings are a fun and delicious to eat and seeing them made in-house definitely makes me want to give them a try!

      1. If you go for lunch there is a good chance they will be making fresh dim sum for you!

    2. There was on average a 4 minute wait. A few times there was no wait. When did you go? They were making dim sum when I visited for lunch.

  3. Wow, the har gow looks really good in your picture. I’ve gone a couple of times now and it’s been hit and miss. Hopefully, they’ve got their processes inline now and it’s consistently good.

    1. I waited for the crowds to disappear and it’s been good every time I went.

  4. So, was this for dinner? I’m wondering because our lunches there have been pretty bad.

  5. I went for lunch and revisited for dinner. At lunch I watched them make dim sum. At dinner it was mostly ordering off the menu. Food was good both times.
