President Theodore Roosevelt famously advised patrons of Mama Fu's to “Wok softly and carry big chopsticks.” Heed his words of wisdom with today’s Groupon. For $10, you get $20 worth of Asian fare and drinks at Mama Fu’s Asian House, located across the bay from Tampa at the Clearwater Mall. Mama Fu’s recently appeared on the “Top 100 Movers & Shakers” list of Fast Casual Magazine.
Dine on a versatile menu of freshly prepared, Asian-inspired delights that are whipped up quickly and skillfully. Start off with an appetizer, such as the potstickers (filled with pork, green cabbage, scallions, and ginger), lettuce wraps (chicken or tofu with shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, scallions, and garlic), and general’s wings (full pound with spices, sweet chili, garlic, and scallion glaze). Salad and soup options include the peanut soy salad (soy-glazed chicken over mixed greens, carrots, snap peas, wonton chips, and sesame seeds, with a soy peanut dressing) and Thai coconut soup (with chicken breast, lemongrass, mushrooms, tomatoes, and lime). Or opt for an entree with your option of chicken, beef, shrimp, tofu, or veggies. Options include honey glazed, Thai cashew stir fry, lo mein, Vietnamese crunchy noodles, and Thai fu noodles.
Mastery of chopsticks comes only after tireless attempts to snatch a buzzing fly from midair or sampling a wide range of speedily prepared dishes. Mama Fu’s offers a great place to do so, with a menu that can be customized for vegetarians while avoiding unwelcome attention from insect-rights activists.
This blogger was pleased with the food and price at Mama Fu’s Asian House: I would definitely recommend Mama Fu’s for an affordable meal with an Asian flavor. If you want Authentic Asian food, you might be disappointed. Overall the flavors were mild, lacking in zing, but a tasty and very affordable Americanized version of Asian food. – Diane Watkins, Tampa Ethnic Foods Examiner
