Fu's is a Hong Kong-style cha canting serving a variety of Hong Kong diner food and a particularly outstanding version of claypot rice, curry beef brisket and a massive, massive pork cutlet that is on everyone's table.
Located on South Shanxi road, Fu is a decent restaurant for when all you want is good old-fashioned Cantonese food. The menu is long but here’re some of my favorites.
First enter you will find the poster of its signature pork cutlet on the wall, and it’s definitely a must! It’s massive and they put it in a plate that doesn’t even fit, which makes it very hard to cut, but it’s worth the fuss! It’s crunchy and one of the best I’ve tried in Shanghai. Greens are always good here with simple seasoning. I like broccoli and lettuce and it’s always fresh.
Another must-eat is their clay pot rice and it usually takes some time for it to arrive as they make it by order. I had the classic sausage claypot rice last time when I visited the place, and it was delicious! With only few ingredients in the pot, Canton sausage, broccoli, and soy sauce, it’s amazing how it tasted so well. The rice was rightly caramelized underneath and blended perfectly with the sweet soy sauce.
Classic drinks are all good here and I especially like their pearl barley water, it’s sweet and fresh with the taste of pandan leaves. Sweets like French toast and pineapple bun with butter are also on every tables.
The place itself isn’t that fancy and comfortable if I’m being honest, but somehow makes it more authentic. The price are fair with a long menu and you’ll for sure be fulfilled after.
