Wu Fung Dessert

I fooled around with Audible for a couple of months not long ago but I can only subscribe to so many things. How many podcasts and books and music can one person listen to? While there (at Audible) I came across a Canadian restaurant review podcast that took a swing through Richmond and visited some of our favourites such as Hong Kong Barbeque Master and Jade. They also visited Wu Fung Dessert in Aberdeen Mall and I was surprised to learn that they do not in fact, serve desserts. There is a bit of a joke or play on words there but lacking the language skills, I did not get it.WFD is a family business going back quite a while and seems to be one of the AM favourites judging by the lineup we encountered on the weekend at about noon. 

They are apparently famous for their wings which are available in various quantities and combinations.
We chose a 3-pack which was only $7. They were in fact pretty spectacular wings. Crispy on the outside but still moist on the inside...how they are supposed to be, you know? Lightly coated with maybe a rice flour or cornstarch-based coating to make them crispy.
As part of a combo, we chose brisket and tofu skin with Vermicelli in broth. If not a show stopper, this was a very comforting dish and the brisket was nicely tender and 'beefy'. The combo came with a beverage and we chose Lemon Coke which was very much just coke with a hit of lemon slices and juice. It was a nice and tasty idea.
There are quite a few deep-fried items on their menu and we chose Deep-Fried Intestines. Not my favourite thing (sort of too organy for me) but Mharie liked them. They came with a slightly spicy dipping sauce which was pretty necessary and cut through the strong flavours.
Finally, we tried a dish of Pork Skin and Daikon Radish. I assume that this is a home-style dish which might comfort people and remind them of their childhood. While it did not remind me of my childhood, it was rich and warm with interesting texture but not leaping out with big flavour. Just kind of nice, you know?
There is a lot of food court seating but it gets busy at mealtimes. The same advice applies as when we tried Liang Crispy Rolls, namely, dine at off times or have someone lined up for a tab;e while someone else waits for the food! Or get your food to go.
