Furenzu in Emeryville - what to order
- Sarah Nov 5, 2006 02:20 AM
Going next week, any suggestions? Menu looks, um, esoteric... to a meat/potato person.
Definitely the edamame. OMG, who knew that soybeans could be so good? Lipsmacking, finger-licking good. We also enjoyed the honey ribs and shrimp in the nest. We had a lot of other dishes too, almost all of which were good but apparently not great enough to job my memory! However, I do remember that we finished with the gorgonzola and peach flambe. Very dramatic presentation. The taste was a little too mellow for me, I was expecting more oomph from the gorgonzola. All in all though it was an excellent meal.
FYI, I don't think the menu online is the most current one.
I ate there perhaps four months ago, while running errands in Emeryville, and honestly can't remember any dish we had, except the chicken wings, which were good. However, I do remember that we spent what seemed like a lot more money then I would have expected given the atmosphere, and left hungry! So, if you go, order a lot...I wasn't satisfied and probably wouldn't return: I remember thinking afterwards that Berkeley or North Oakland really aren't that far away....
Everything I had was good but they are small plates. So don't do really hungry or you will be spending alot of money.
