Fat Kong – a Chinese treat in Mumbai
This evening my sister was craving something which would get her our from her usual bland diet food. We’ve been eating indian food, so it was time to step it up to Chinese food.
We didint want to have a blow out meal so we opted for a fast food Chinese joint.
Fat Kong, conveniently located at SV road in Mumbai has been her favorite quick Chinese fix for some time, it was time for me to taste it.
At first you will might be put off by its yellow and red color, somewhat dodgy kitchen sense and road side tables, but this is Mumbai and as the locals say, the less extravagant the place, the tastier the food. Bang on!
Note – we did have to move around a few tables before deciding where to sit as the mosquitoes kept following up, good thing the waiter caught on fast and lit a mosquitos repellent incense for us.
So the food; I got myself a fried spinach and prawn dish, and to share a threaded paneer. Amazing!, I haven’t tried such delicious shrimps anywhere I have been, perhaps they are not gourmet or whatever, but dude, they were juicy, had the nice am out of chilli sauce to it and we’re sure savory. The fried spinach was good too, it pretty much resembled fried algi which Koreans and Japanese people have.
The threaded paneer was the treat though, paneer is a sort of cottage cheese, now cheese battered up with instant noodles and fried – nothing more to say, this was served with schezuan sauce which made it the icing on the cake.
All in all a great Chinese snack for those wanting to have something tasty but not looking to have a proper meal.
