In a culinary climate where Fujianese, Hong Kong, and Shanghai restaurants have occupied most of the storefronts in Manhattan’s Chinatown, and Southern Chinese rice shops have long since been replaced by northern-leaning dumpling stalls and Taiwanese bubble-tea parlors, the advent of Feng Cheng Yuan came as something of a surprise. Ducks, chickens, and pigs hang in the window of this retro Cantonese teahouse. Of these, the roast pork is particularly distinguished, available over rice with star anise sauce and a ginger-scallion relish. (If you don’t receive any, ask for it.) Lo mein, available in soups and stir-fries, is another specialty. The place even flaunts its Chinese-American egg foo yongs and poached bean curd dishes. Although the menu is mainly Cantonese, Feng Cheng Yuan also lists a smattering of Sichuan and Hunan dishes, and the walls are plastered with bright color photos of many of the restaurant’s offerings. The place is spacious; seating is mainly at round, mixed-party tables; and most of the patrons can be seen eating with forks.
