Fortune Cooky in Poughkeepsie
Does anyone know what's going on with Fortune Cooky on Raymond Ave.? I tried their last known phone number a few minutes ago and it just rings and rings.
I know they'd closed for a long time due to fire damage, but last I heard they were planning to rebuild and re-open. I don't get over to Poughkeepsie very often these days, so I haven't had a chance to swing by there recently to see for myself.
Fortune Cooky is my favorite local "Mom 'n Pop" Chinese place; I've been a satisfied customer since around the time they opened in the early '80s. I always found the people and the food wonderful. It would break my heart if they closed down for good.
just drove by there - it looks like sushi village (next door) is open, but there's a white sign in the window of the cooky which says "closed due to renovations".
my question for you - when it opens - what is so good about that place, or what would i want to try? i'm thoroughly underwhelmed by any chinese in this area, and prefer to make my own kung pao chicken (and i'm not a good cook by any means) than eat most things at the local places.
re: bob gaj
Ditto on your statement about Chinese food in the area (with the exception about making my own - I guess I'm too lazy & know very well that I'll be dissapointed by my own Chinese cooking- even though I grew up eating Chinese food!!)
I haven't been to all the Chinese places in Dutchess County, but whenever I need something that's good "Americanized Chinese food," I go to Golden Wok in Red Hook. The owner does sometimes make specials for me, I cannot complain....
