Mama Fu's Asian House
Last week I was invited to come try Mama Fu's Asian House in Mandarin. They are very conveniently located on San Jose near 295 and were pretty busy when we arrived, which is a great sign. We ordered our food at the counter and took a seat. We talked a little with the owner and found out that she recently did some renovations to the restaurant (she has owned Mama Fu's since January) to make it more modern. She has done a great job because they place is beautiful. I also love that you can see into the kitchen and watch them make your food. Everything is cooked fresh right there!
For my entree I went with the Mongolian Chicken with Fried Rice which had sliced mushrooms, fresh onions, and scallions. Wow, this plate looked fantastic! Everything was steaming and you could tell it was freshly prepared. I took my first bite and was very impressed. It was very delicious and had very distinct flavors. There was noting bland about this dish! I also really loved the fried rice. It had a taste all it's own and was different than others I have had. We were sitting there at the table commenting on how great it was, really.
My husband decided on the Thai Cashew Stir Fry (Steak) with toasted cashews in a garlic soy sauce with carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, snap peas, and red bell peppers. He was also in love with his dish. I took a little bite and was blown away at the flavor.
Verdict: Loved it!
We were really happy to be invited out because this place was amazing! While talking to the owner we found out that they also offer online ordering as well as a loyalty program ($10 credit for every $100 that is spent!) We were very impressed with the food and the prices are great (under $10). If you are in the Mandarin area, give them a try!
