Eating Lunch in Westlake Area of Bethesda – Fu Shing CafeSeptember 11, 2012
Wanting to write local food reviews for many of the businesses I frequent, I started with a post about a downtown Bethesda sandwich shop called “Eating Lunch in Downtown Bethesda – Taylor Gourmet Deli.” I’d like to continue this series with a review of a Chinese Restaurant in the Westlake/Montgomery Mall neighborhood of Bethesda, Maryland.
When my children were young, we ate at Fu Shing Cafe quite often. The casual atmosphere and kid-friendly staff made the eating experience with children very enjoyable. As my children got older, I took them to Jade Billows, a local restaurant that recently closed down, causing local residents to wonder where to get their Chinese take-out. Many of my neighbors were impressed by the food at Fu Shing Cafe.
I decided to revisit Fu Shing Cafe and see if it might be the new go-to Chinese restaurant for my family. My family and I were pleasantly surprised by how good the food really was.
My daughters typically don’t care for very spicy food, but they decided to try the Orange Beef. I picked the hot peppers out when they weren’t looking and they devoured the dish quickly. When I sampled it, I thought it was very well cooked, and flavorful, but not too sweet and not too hot.
I selected the Kung Pao Chicken because I love spicy food and wanted to see if it had any heat. It was delicious and quite spicy. The chicken was tender, it included a good selection of fresh veggies, and it wasn’t drenched in a heavy sauce. It felt fresh and my daughters ate most of my mushrooms, so it wasn’t too hot. But the heat did build as I continued to eat.
All in all, we had a great meal and the service was friendly. My family will be returning to Fu Shing again soon. I’m especially happy to report that we have the good fortune to have a great go-to Chinese restaurant in our neighborhood for eat-in or carry out.
If you would like to visit Fu Shing Cafe in Bethesda, the address is 10315 Westlake Drive in Bethesda, MD and is located in a small shopping center just west of the Westfield Montgomery Mall.
If you, or someone you know is thinking about buying or selling a home in the DC Metropolitan Area, give me a call to Get Started.

Simply wanna remark that you have a very decent website , I enjoy the design and style it really stands out.
Update on Fu Shing Cafe – Yesterday I was eating dinner at our friends’ home and they oredered take-out from Fu Shing. They ordered eggplant, but with the black bean sauce. It was very delicious. You have to specify the sauce because it is not on the menu, but it is worth a try.
bookmarked!!, I like your site!
