The first time I had Mama Fu was when I was about 15/16 years old. It was when they first opened and I was interested in what this new Asian fusion restaurant served. I was greatly disappointed and never went back until this year... Maybe 5 years later and now I'm kinda liking it. Back then I got the mongolian and it tasted and looked like a burnt mess. Reason why I never went back and many of my friends also didn't like it.
Years later I decided to go and check it out again and I wasn't as disappointed. I think I wanted some brown rice and it was in the area so I headed in to grab something. I ended up trying the chicken Red Thai Curry with brown rice and I liked it. The curry isn't like what you normally get at Thai restaurants, it was a bit more watery and isn't as good but it was decent. I loved how fresh the veggies tasted and the sauce made the brown rice easier to eat. Anyways after that I occasionally come by to grab some food because I rather eat from Mama Fu's then those take out Chinese. I can't take the overloaded sugar and grease.
Anyways, last night I went to go try the pad thai. It wasn't amazing but it wasn't bad. The amount of food was pretty good for the price but I wish the price included a drink. That would be great but they do have days for special meals and deals. The pad thai got me full and I had half of it left. The rice noodles was right and the color was good but I was confused which was chicken pieces and tofu. The tofu pieces were random but I didn't mind it. It was a bit too tangy for me and I didn't love the flavor as much as other places.
One of my favorite at Mama Fu's would be the Thai Coconut Soup. It's similar to the ones at Thai restaurants but isn't as loaded or flavorful. I like this soup because it's light and it's just a blast to have. It's tangy and addicting. I wish there were more chicken and veggies in it but sadly there's only floating mushrooms and a few chunks of chicken and tomatoes.
