Photo Friday: Hung Fatt

For decades, every time I've passed this small, Montreal Road Chinese restaurant, I've wanted to take a photo of its sign.

This Beacon Hill take-out restaurant looks as though it started as a home and, despite its size, does not offer dine-in service. Perhaps it is because the owners live there?

Though I've never eaten food from there, I've always been intrigued by this eatery's name. I mean, how appealing is the name?

I've always guessed that the food must be decent if a small, out-of-the-way restaurant has survived for more than 20 years. But, according to some reviewers at Urbanspoon, Hung Fatt has changed management and is no longer as good as it once was.

Have you eaten at Hung Fatt? How is it?

One of these days, I'll go. It's not a convenient restaurant for me: usually, when I'm out in the east end of the city, I'm visiting friends who offer hard-to-beat, homemade pizza. But someday, if I have the chance, I just might pick something up.

I just won't think of the name while I'm putting food in my mouth.

Happy Friday!


  1. I've eaten there before and after the management change. Definitely worse now.

    The old place was cash only. And much better food.

    The new is of course more expensive and worse food.

    1. Thanks for the advice, Joel. Maybe I'll just admire the sign.
