Cuisine: Chinese Seafood & Dim Sum
Fu Lam Mum
Fu Lam Mum is one of the more popular restaurants on Castro Street, especially on weekends — just look for the crowds, inside and out. The restaurant, people, atmosphere, delicious Chinese Seafood and amazing Dim Sum reminds us of our dining adventures in China and Hong Kong.
Description & Atmosphere
The spacious restaurant features a split-level dining room with large picture windows overlooking Castro Street — we like sitting on the second level overlooking the main dining area. Bustling best describes the atmosphere — it's like Grand Central Station watching the wait staff expertly weave their Dim Sum carts around the tables and crowded dining room.
Packed with tables of all sizes, including quite a few large round tables (on both levels) — Fu Lam Mum is a fun place to come with family, friends, clients and business associates. There's also a full bar.
— Dim Sum
If you like Dim Sum, you're in for a treat — the menu is extensive and each dish is fresh, delicious and served hot. We especially like anything with shrimp — so plump and flavorful. Some of our favorites include:
Crispy Shrimp Balls, Shrimp Shu Mai, Shrimp Eggplant, Shrimp Noodles, Steamed Shrimp with Spring Onion, Stuffed Mushrooms with Shrimp, and Prawns with Walnuts.
Chinese Broccoli is individually served, steaming hot right off the cart (a nice touch). Tasty Steamed BBQ Buns and BBQ Pork Pastries are hard to resist. And Fu Lam Mum's Sticky Rice is the best we've ever tasted.
Enjoy special reduced Dim Sum prices during late night hours (9pm-midnight).
Lunch Specials & Chef's Suggestions Lunch Specials (weekdays only) and Chef's Suggestions are also very popular. Sample Chef's Suggestions include: Sauteed Scallops & Steak Cubes with Honey Pepper Sauce, Sauteed Whole Flounder Fish with Eggplant, Braised Goose Web & Fish Maw in Abalone Sauce, Ying Yang Sausage with Chinese Spinach, Sauteed Lamb with Ginger & Scallion, Braised Tofu with Preserved Veggie & Mushrooms... and many more delicious entrees.
