We were the ONLY customers in the restaurant. I'm not exaggerating. It was just us and the Fong boys. We took a picture to prove it. This was around 8 p.m. on a Thursday night. We walked in and were greeted immediately by one of the hosts. They sat us down and brought us these chips. It's some sort of fried won ton type stuff served with sweet and sour sauce. It's Chinese chips and salsa essentially. Very good. Then our awkward waiter came. His English wasn't the best and he was amused/offended (I couldn't tell which) when I asked him if he was Mr. Fong. He wasn't. And he really didn't get what we were asking when we wanted him to recommend something, but that's what gives Fong's its character. Poor English, awkward service, and GREAT food.
We went with the sweet and sour pork and their walnut shrimp. It got to us about 4 minutes later (the chefs weren't too busy). The walnut shrimp is the best shrimp dish I have ever had in my entire life. I couldn't get over how good it was. Really. It floored me.
This may be a random/boring post, but we thought we'd share our recommendation with you. Think of it as another installment in our Travel Tips. So if you're ever in Draper and get the craving for some Chinese food, or just need a good family doctor (see sign), just swing by Fong's. You're guaranteed to have a short wait, great recommendations from the staff ("pork good"), and amazing food. It may be a hole in the wall and the lack of customers may scare you, but take our word for it, Fong's is worth every awkward moment.Satisfaction guaranteed.
