Every once in a while, vendors at work will offer to bring lunch for the office. This past week, our landscapers offered to bring us lunch, joking that he would bring Panda Express. There was a horrified gasp around the office, then silence. Finally, we all agreed that we would be willing to try Fung Mei on Pleasant Hill Road in Lawrenceville.
I read many reviews of this particular restaurant (I wanted to be well prepared for what I might expect to eat) and I saw a wide variety of opinions, ranging from glowing praise to scathing negativity. However, I decided to let MY opinion and my impression speak for itself.
Flavor-wise, the chicken was truly lacking. I could not identify an actual "flavor" because it seemed to be nothing more than a sweet chili sauce, drenching the chicken. (I am guessing that this might have been a General Tso's chicken, or some version of it...)
The fried rice was... Rice. Soaked in soy sauce, clumpy, with some tiny, barely discernable pieces of carrot. It was bland, tasteless, definitely not noteworthy.
Given that the meal was free, i was not going to complain about it to the gentleman who brought it. I will, however, never order THAT particular dish. My next visit to Fung Mei will be one where I control the dishes served. Hopefully, I will have a meal worth repeating.
Until then, Eat Well, Friends...
