Chow Funn on the Beach

July 13, 2007


I had the most intense craving for chow funn this morning, and since it was well before 8am, I figured I might have a good shot at driving down to Fukuya’s before they sold out. I like the concept of local okazuyas: a wide variety for you to pick and pair your own lunch, whether it be five pieces futomaki, two rounds of potato hash and a side of hijiki or shoyu hot dogs and mochicko chicken.

Not the healthiest food in the world, but it sure it satisfying! The only downside to okazuyas (for me at least) is that they open just so darn early, and close at the most inconvenient hours. Pop in at an okazuya during an early lunch hour of 11am, and you’re likely to find that most of the good stuff has been sold for the day.

Well then, buy your lunch early in the morning and keep it with you till lunch time, you may suggest. But that doesn’t work out so well either. I like to eat my food as fresh as possible, and I’m quite awful at “saving for later.” I either don’t buy and don’t eat it. Or I buy and eat it right away. No sense in letting food sit around.

Back to the chow funn: I got this Chinese takeout box sized container for about $6, a bit more costly than other places, but if it’s good, it should be worth it. I then drove down to the beach, sat in the car and had chow funn on the beach at 7am. I don’t do this often, but it was so enjoyable, than I think I should make it a weekly excursion! Fukuya’s chow funn turned out to a lot more ‘wet’ than the norm, something which I enjoyed, but if you’re a fan of more ‘dry’ chow funn like my dad, then you’re better off finding another okazuya. A fair mix of veggies running from carrots, bean sprouts and green onions along with the occasional piece of char siu. I like how they make it more peppery than other places, and not too greasy (although a good sheen is necessary to secure that wonderfully slippery feel of the noodles in your mouth ;)
