Go Authentic at Fortune Chinese Restaurant

Fortune Chinese Restaurant has two locations, each with two menus. The one in Hales Corners (5512 S. 108th St.) is the larger and nicer spot. (The other is located at 2945 S. 108th St., West Allis.) You will be handed an Americanized Chinese menu—chop suey, egg foo young, etc.—but ask for the authentic Chinese version. A few months ago the Hales Corners location was remodeled and a Japanese sushi bar was added (creating still another menu). The Japanese menu is mainly nigiri and maki sushi and sashimi, along with a few appetizers. Fortune remains Chinese at heart, and the authentic Chinese menu simply has no equal in this area. Where else can you have California roll as a starter for duck feet with Chinese mushroom in casserole? (Jeff Beutner)
