Nicely balanced Cantonese cooking

Cantonese cuisine can be so generic and poorly executed all over the world, but not at Fatty Weng's new place in Chinatown.  It's a huge improvement over the previous tenant of this iconic corner.  The food is nicely balanced and a good mix of what "Chinese" restaurant patrons from all over expect in a Cantonese menu, and the chef's unique dishes.  The decor and staff are wonderful.  This is not one of those huge dining halls full of tables for 12.  This is more intimate and clean, more of a restaurant than a dining hall.  It works!

My only real complaint is the price - quite high for what you get, though this location makes it justifiable, I suppose.

Fatty weng's food is tasty no doubt, especially soon hock which we never failed to order everytime we went.

However, our vegetable dish had a bristle from a brush and some bits of dish scrub so we asked the asst manger over for assistance on the matter. They did not change our dish nor was there an apology, just upon spitting out the bristle and observing the scrub bits from us, she confirmed 'oh it's from washing the dishes' and walked away. Was quite disappointed and probably won't go back anytime soon.

Hearty Cantonese Cuisine

Fatty Weng is an established brand when it comes to Cantonese food, and its not surprise that this new outlet at Smith Street is gaining in popularity.

Start with something light - the Tofu with Mushroom and Broccoli has soft silky beancurd with slightly cooked broccoli to add a crunch in a reduction sauce.

For something more indulgent try the Deep fried Soon Hock - fresh fish with black sauce to add to a salt crunch finish.

Another rich dish is the Pai Kwat Wong, or pork ribs served with thick sweet sauce.

For some soul food, go for the Xiao Bai Chye with 3 eggs- with light broth to calm you after a long day at the office.

Finally, end with the Chilled Mango Sago. Thick large portion served in a bowl chilled that would leave a lingering sweet taste in the mouth.

Well there you have it, traditional Cantonese food at Fatty Weng, located right at the heart of China Town to add to the vibe.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
