fortune seafood, malolos, bulacan

I treated our party of 10 to lunch at Fortune (Hong Kong) Seafood Restaurant in Malolos, Bulacan during our stay. Located on a business strip right off of the MacArthur Highway it is sandwiched between a couple of larger, flashier chain restaurants. Fortune touts itself as being one of those ‘forreal’ Chinese joints. I’m not Chinese so I can’t tell you how authentic it is, but for what it’s worth the meal was pretty darn good. Instead of pouring over the menu we ordered a family meal that set me back about USD 60.

First course: minced beef soup. One of those cornstarch-based, egg drop-like soups wtigh green onions and cabbage. My dad thought it was a bit ‘malansa’ at first but a few squeezes of the lemon cleared that up.

Second course: lumpiang fortune. Their version of lumpiang shangai was not very pretty looking but very good tasting. The fancy garnish in the back was made of jicama. I only know this because my cousin took a bite out of it.

Main course #1: combination chow mein. The usual beef, chicken, shrimp, and squid with veggies gravy over soft noodles. Nicely executed, we finished off most of the serving.

Main course #2: shrimp fried rice. A light, tasty rendition of fried rice. Nice and simple with just green onions and shrimp.

Main course #3: fried chicken garnished with shrimp chips. I found the fried chicken a little dry on the inside with a very oily skin. Not a fave.

Main couse #4: tofu and lapu-lapu in black bean sauce. This came last and was really light and tasty. Fun fact of the day: Lapu-Lapu was the chieftain who killed Magellan. If you’re wondering, we did in fact name a fish after one of our national heroes.

There was another main course of beef shank with tripe but I didn’t get to try it due to super full-ness. I had to leave room for dessert. My mom calls this buchi-buchi. It’s a sesame rice ball wrapped around sweetened red bean. Made and eaten fresh it might be one of the best things ever.

Overall 4.5 stars **** out of 5.

  1. My family and I celebrate some special occassions at Fortune. Occassions like wedding anniversary of parents, birthday of sister, and niece, and my own birthday. If we cannot dine there, we take out at least. Favorites are Fortune Seafood Combination Soup, Salt and Pepper Ribs, Assorted Meat Fried Noodles, Chicken with Cashew Nuts, and Chicken Feet. Thumbs up!!!!!

  22. This is the perfect web site for anybody who would like to understand this
    topic. You understand a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually
    would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that has
    been discussed for decades. Excellent stuff, just excellent!

  24. The management needs to invest in training their staff with proper customer service. The waiters and waitresses stare at you while you eat as if they are sizing you up or egging you on something. It is understandable if they are standing around your table to anticipate your needs while gawking at you. But the irony is when the time comes that you really need something; it takes several attempts to get the waiter’ and waitresses’ attention. It’s not worth wasting your money in this establishment with bad staff and mediocre food. A truly frustratingly, terrible dining experience … Be warned!
