“Yao Fuzi is an ode to ‘Shanghainese,” proclaimed the Dallas Observer, “the cuisine of that highly Westernized and stylized port city Shanghai, facing the East China Sea.” That may be music to the ears of anyone who has traveled to China, but for everyone else, well, they can simply follow their nose. The mingling aromas of fresh ginger, dried chili peppers, and hoisin sauce all echo the chefs’ commitment to using regional Chinese flavors. These ingredients appear throughout the noodle dishes, homemade dumplings, and stir-fried beef, chicken, and seafood entrees that fill a menu that Zagat rated as “Extraordinary to Perfection.” To accompany the cuisine, Yao Fuzi features an impressively diverse selection of drinks that includes specialty martinis, sakes, and a number of different teas. Much like the menu, Yao Fuzi’s décor manages to embrace the restaurant’s Shanghai roots. One entire wall of the intimately-lit dining room is decorated with glass-encased scrolls of Chinese calligraphy. These same characters appear on some of the frosted glass panes that divide a handful of tables, creating a sense of privacy for those who like to sing to their food.
Handpicked mangos; ramen imported from Japan; high-grade nishiki rice; 32 original sauces, all made from scratch. These are a few of the unique, high-quality ingredients that chefs at Mr. Wok Asian Bistro have at their disposal. So they never use trans-fats to create flavor—there’s no need. The fresh ingredients make for tasty, healthy Asian dishes all on their own, allowing guests to enjoy classic dishes like Peking duck and potstickers without fear. Of course, the real ingenuity lies in the restaurant's modern signature dishes, which surprise palates with their creative twists. For instance, a crispy wonton bowl bears the creamy mango shrimp, while Ton Chung soup combines the rich flavors of wok-fried pork, mushrooms, and scallions into a single bowl. And, in lieu of veggies, bananas and chocolate fill a crunchy spring roll shell, a swap that, like forgetting to thaw cocktail weenies before a party, turns a classic appetizer into a dessert.
