Year of the Takeout Day 82: Fortune Place

Year of the Takeout Day 82: Fortune Place

Dragon and Phoenix from Fortune Place (288-286 Broadway, 718-963-3533)

For $8.95 worth of weird, look no further than this sampling -- a combo available on almost every Cantonese-American establishment visited by Year of the Takeout.

The white wine sauce on the shrimp ain't that bad, but the sesame chicken could have been more freshly fried. Most troubling, though, was that the juxtaposition of garlicky saltiness and sweet breading just seemed off, not balanced.
