If you have a super-keen eye (or, like, just read the side of their building), you might recognize this restaurant from its role in the seminal 1998 film, Rush Hour. But unlike most big shots from that time, Foo Chow’s star power hasn’t dimmed a single watt - their current takeout menu is filled with unique dishes like stir-fried fresh squid, sauteed jellyfish in a sweet and sour sauce, and bean curd and oyster soup.
