Hungry Monday- Mama Fu's

Don't wok. Run.

Mama Fu's is a Austin-owned, fairly-young business boasting made to order Asian food in a fun and casual environment. When you walk in there's bright decor and a clean, modern feel to the space. At the Triangle location, if you look carefully at the large dots on the wall, they have little sayings on them that are all plays on the word 'wok' (Because you're mine, I wok the line; Wok tall). I still chuckle when I see them.

Keep in mind that this is not "authentic" Asian food. However, the dishes are super tasty AND much healthier than traditional Asian cuisine. 

All of the dishes come with your choice of protein -chicken, beef, tofu, and shrimp, as well as veggie only- and can be cooked traditional, which is lightly breaded in potato starch, or wok seared, which has no breading and is the healthier option. In addition, each dish comes with white, brown or fried rice, or egg or rice noodles. 

The best part for me is that extra veggies are no charge, AND since they make every dish to order, if you don't like anything in the dish you can nix it or exchange it for something you do like. So, for example, when I get sweet and sour chicken, it comes with red bell peppers... but, I don't like those. So instead I get green beans and mushrooms and snap peas and carrots and whatever else sounds good that day. The vegetables are super fresh, also, always prepared the day of. 

So, if you're aiming for healthy eating habits, get your entree wok seared with brown rice and pile on as many veggies as you'd like! There's also an extensive gluten free menu with many gluten free sauce options. 

My favorite meal is probably Potstickers along with the Honey Seared Chicken with Brown Rice and every vegetable on the menu (except bell peppers of course).

Other recommendations include: Mongolian Beef, Sesame Chicken, Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Pad Thai.

There are several area locations (and Mama Fu's has recently expanded to other states as well!). They have dine-in, take-out, delivery and catering options.  Check out more info at !
