Village Voice's Description

Sure it's a Fujianese restaurant, but is it the best? Best Fuzhou is certainly among the top ten in town, a bright small space that takes its seafood very seriously. Tops in our book is a fish maw soup (referred-to as "fish stomach" on the menu) with so-called "water melon" (which isn't the red-fleshed fruit). The brilliant potage is improved with tiny little color spots of red jujube dates. The clams with fresh garlic were another hit: a Sicilian-style seafood salad presented in a series of giant clam shells. It will leave your mouth burning with raw garlic. Frog's legs are another Fujianese passion, and so is pork with lychee. But don't be disturbed when you discover that there's no actual lychee in it.

    Get the Eggplant with Garlic Sauce-The steaming dish is garlicky in the extreme, and the spiciness comes from strips of green chile.

    Sietsema on Pork with Lichee: "The nuggets of pork are supposed to resemble unpeeled lichees... the dish is delectable, the painfully red meat slightly sweet and set off by crisply cooked vegetables"

    The Village Voice voted this Best Fish Maw Soup in our Best Of New York Poll!

    Daring diners do #106 wu geng chang wang (五更腸旺~) “fifth watch intestine brilliance”—a reference to the last night watch, the predawn hours when, presumably, the intestines are at their most brilliant.

    Open 10am-2am 7 days. Cheap, uncompromised, plus the homemade noodles look delish. Try the noodle w duck & taro (40) #latenight
