Mama Fu's Black Market Menu Review #Austin #Food

Disclosure: In exchange for this review, I attended a blogger luncheon at no charge.
Tucked into the Triangle at Lamar and Guadalupe in Austin, you'll find Mama Fu's Asian House restaurant. I was delighted to attend a blogger luncheon to sample their limited time Black Market Menu, created in-house by their own chefs.
If you live around Austin or are traveling to Austin, I encourage you stop in and eat at Mama Fu's. The food is fabulous, the restaurant is clean and inviting, and the service is wonderful. I especially love the wall of windows that lets in natural light and overlooks a tropical garden filled with birds.
The Black Market Menu features very affordably-priced menu items that are made to order. The chef-inspired cuisine includes a wide variety of flavors including Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Vietnamese and Korean.
The Miso Soup is a vegetarian soup featuring shiitake mushroom broth. It's not a spicy soup, but very flavorful. It's a great choice as a light appetizer.
The Hoisin BBQ Ribs tops the list of my favorite tastes of the day. The St Louis cut pork ribs are seared in a  scrumptious sweet and spicy barbecue sauce and served with tasty ginger soy kale. I probably could have eaten a dozen of them!
I was warned the Thai Fire Curry was a highly-spiced meal, but I found it to be spiced just right. Eating it didn't require me to gulp down water afterward (although I adore their blueberry pomegranate tea). It's probably one of the best curry meals I've ever had. I tried it with chicken and brown rice, then tofu and white rice. Other options include pork, beef or shrimp.
The Vietnamese vermicelli includes choice of pork, chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu, and comes with Vietnamese dipping sauce and peanut sauce. I tried the chicken with the dipping sauce and the tofu with the peanut sauce. Definitely a fabulous choice either way.
The Tokyo Strip Steak is an eight ounce NY strip that is flash-seared to a medium rare. It's a sweeter taste than I expected, but very good. It's topped with shiitake mushroom sauce and served with what must be the world's most delicious wasabi mashed potatoes.
Treat yourself to a mouth-watering dessert with their delicious Apple Dumplings, dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with caramel sauce. It's very difficult NOT to literally lick the plate clean at Mama Fu's!
If you have children, you'll be thrilled to know that Mama Fu's is child-friendly and so are their Kids' Menu options. We sampled four different options of their healthy delicious non-spicy children's menu items. Although I'm not a big fan of any edamame, everything else was great.
The new children's menu items will be listed with the National Restaurant Association’s Kids Live Well dining guide, which helps parents and children select healthy menu options when dining out. It was a pleasure to meet the staff at Mama Fu's, sample the Black Market menu, and mingle with some fellow Austin-area bloggers.
I highly recommend Mama Fu's Asian House!
Visit them in person at 4615 N Lamar Blvd, Suite 307, in Austin, Texas.
