Last night my wife and I had the pleasure of being among the first in Waco to try Mama Fu's. We both had never been Mama Fu's so we had no idea what to expect other than their website looks like they compete with Pei Wei. We went in to the restaurant knowing that the service staff was still in training so there was going to be hiccups. Surprisingly the service was great but that was not the star of the show. The food was excellent! I had the Honey Seared Chicken with Fried Rice and my wife had the Spicy General Fu chicken. The honey seared was spot on, a hint of
Honey that wasn't overwhelming. The fried rice wasn't greasy and was tasty. Now when my wife was pregnant last year we ate more than our share of Pei Wei and like most pregnant women she had a streak for spicy food. Now after the birth of our child the Pei Wei consumption is down but the spicy streak is still there. The Spicy General Fu was exactly what she had been looking for all the time at Pei Wei but couldn't quite get. It was a sweet heat, a spicy blend of chile sauce and honey. I would recommend Mama Fu's to anyone, especially those who like Pei Wei. It's the same type food and atmosphere but with more flavor. Go try it, you won't be disappointed.
