My roughage intake is generally low and always has been. As a kid I would never eat salad, I would even order my McChickens without lettuce. I finally ate my first salad in Grade 12, it was clucks and greens at Red Robins.
A friend and I took a journey to Fortune Garden to go eat duck. Fortune Garden has an fantastic duck special on for 17.99 but you must order one other dish. What a deal!!! You get the duck skin with the wrap and then an order of lettuce wrap, all for 17.99!!! We ordered a crab egg fu yung (14.50) as the third dish.
The service was great and the restaurant appears very clean and tidy. Although, I didn't check out the washroom which is often the true measure of cleanliness for a Chinese restaurant. Both of our dishes of duck were really good. Nothing incredible but on par with every other lettuce wrap and duck skin dish I have had. What really excited me was how many servings I got to have because there were only two of us. Most family dinners I only get to have one serving of this dish. This time I get to have tons.
The egg fu yung was brutal. The crab stank of old fish and the plate simply looked like scrambled eggs. We should have ordered a noodle dish instead.
Bottom line, go have their duck special for dinner while they are still offering it.
