China Fun: A Culinary Delight
China Fun has cemented its reputation as one of the top neighborhood Chinese restaurants on the exclusive Upper East Side of New York City.
Diners at China Fun are greeted with a wide array of options as its wide-ranging menu offers cuisines from each of the various regions of China. Under the direction of Dorothea and Felix Wu since its opening in 1991, guests can be sure that each meal will be great each and every time. This high level of consistency can also be attributed to the restaurant’s Executive Chef Mr. Wing Fong Chen, who has been with the restaurant since the very beginning.
Located on the corner of 64th and Second Avenue in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, China Fun brings unique, delightful twists on traditional Chinese food universally enjoyed by guests. The eatery’s menu is wide-ranging, covering the cuisines from the various regions of China. Traditionally only served during lunch hours, China Fun breaks with popular convention by serving delectable bites from its Dim Sum including its Soup Dumplings, with your choice of pork or pork and crabmeat, all day long.
For your main entrée, China Fun has a wealth of options to choose from noodle dishes to chicken to seafood to satisfy every palate. For a unique, enjoyable take on a classic chicken dish China Fun offers its Chicken in Peach Sauce, served with a sesame seed garnish which tantalizes the palate with its combination of sweet and savory flavors. For a succulent, delicious meal to share with a friend try China Fun’s Peking Duck, cooked to perfection with each bite seemingly melting in your mouth. For vegetarians, the eatery’s offerings include the Snowpeas, String Beans and Broccoli in a white garlic sauce, which offers a flavorful bite. Though only on the menu for Chinese New Year, New York’s best kept secret is that the restaurant’s succulent Red Cooked Pork Belly is available year-round, so as long as you request it 24 hours beforehand.
Pair your delicious meal with one of its signature cocktails either at the intimate wood and marble bar or in its main dining room, which fuses New York chic lines and openness with traditional Chinese cornices. Cocktail options include Spicy Mango Mojito served with Leblon 100% Brazilian Cane Rum, mango, mint, lime and dash of Tabasco, which are beautifully crafted with either a fruity garnish, paper fan or cocktail umbrella to invoke a Polynesian feel. China Fun also utilizes traditional Eastern ingredients in its drinks. For example, the Saketome features sake along with Grey Goose, lime juice, served either shaken or straight up with a pickled ginger garnish. If you want to experience the delectable cuisine of China Fun from home, all of its food and non-alcoholic beverages are available for delivery or takeout.
China Fun is open daily from 11:30 AM to 11:00 PM at 1221 Second Avenue at 64th Street. For reservations or more information, please call 212-752-0810 or visit China Fun
