Eat Fat. Live forever. That’s what Fat Choy’s wall mural says. Perhaps we won’t live forever being gluttonous, but at least, we will die with happy memories of delicious fatty food made by Chef Sheridan Su. Sheridan has finally found a new place to call home inside of the Eureka Casino. Since his lease was not renewed at his famous hole-in-the-wall location at a hair salon, he was on hiatus and literally on the run on his Great Bao food truck until recently.
Fat Choy’s menu is an East meets West feel. It combines diner favorites like burgers and fries with Chinese go to items like potstickers and noodles. Of course, it includes the fan favorites of peking duck and pork belly bao.
Allow me to highlight the artery clogging goodness of these two items: Peking Duck bao with crispy duck skin and the PBBLT. Say what? PORK BELLY, bacon, lettuce and tomato sandiwch? Yes, please. I quote my husband, “It’s enough fat to coat your lips, so you don’t have to wear chapstick for weeks! (in a good way).” While I miss the sesame noodles from the original Great Bao (they have since change to spagetti noodles and the sauce is different), I am perfectly content in just indulging in the delicious bao.
