Kam Fung doesn't promise anything special based on looks alone. Its nondescript storefront awning and tiny, sparsely decorated interior (dominated by three massive lazy susans in the middle of the small space) resemble a dozen other mom-and-pop Chinatown restaurants located less than a block away.
Don't be fooled, though. This is not your average Chinese take-out spot; Kam Fung serves up fresh and authentic Chinese cuisine, with a good number of dishes that appeal to an adventurous palate. When you visit Kam Fung, dine in; you'll want to take the time to savor this meal.
The usual Chinatown suspects like beef and broccoli and shrimp fried rice are available here, but diners looking for a change of pace have plenty to choose from, like oyster and roast pork casserole ($9.95) or an appetizer of sliced pig feet ($5.95). The minced chicken and salted fish with tofu ($5.95) is more interesting than it sounds; it's unusually tangy, laced with small bits of ginger. This and similar dishes are listed as "lunch entrees" but the portions are huge and you can order them anytime of the day. Try the seaweed tofu soup for an alternative to wonton or egg drop soup.
Cheap insomniacs should drop by Kam Fung between midnight and 2 a.m., when the restaurant is packed with night-owl diners eager to sample smaller portions of the regular menu ($3.99).
Average cost: <$10
