Phat Phat Chinese Eatery
Authentic cuisine of southeast Asia in Schaumburg
The owners of Chicago’s award-winning Chinese restaurant Imperial Lamian recently opened a new suburban spot at 17 S. Roselle Rd., in Schaumburg (847 250-2345).
The open, bi-level space features wide windows, exposed brick walls, light-wood flooring and a broad staircase, giving a casual vibe while still signaling an elegant dining experience.
The menu represents dishes form across Southeast Asia, with an extensive selection of clay pot dishes, wok-fired entrées and house-made, hand-pulled noodles. All emphasize fresh ingredients, whether in classic Chinese favorites or in an innovative and colorful display of fresh-made dim sum appetizers that includes everything from Sichuan wantons and pork-filled Sheng Jian Bao to Siew Mai, a dumpling specialty that combines minced chicken, shrimp and shiitake.
Among Phat Phat’s noodle specialties are roasted duck in dark soy and oyster sauce, a beef Char Siew (barbecue) and a seafood dish with shrimp, fish fillet, calamari and egg. Clay pot options include one with pork belly and Chinese sausage and another with seafood and tofu. As veggie sides or shareables, there’s a spiced cauliflower in oyster sauce, Gailan (Chinese broccoli) or snow pea leaves in garlic.Edit Module
