At Fortune House, soup dumplings are a specialty, but they are far from being the only slice of adventure on this epic menu. Owner Lucy Yong, with the help of chef Ren Guoqing and pastry chef Zou Guifeng, brings forth a massive menu that gives equal attention to traditional Shanghai dishes and classic American-Chinese food favorites. Situated in a strip mall on a hill, Fortune House is understated elegance that frames a shockingly beautiful view of Irving’s rolling hills and the far-off Dallas skyline. The decor is muted but classic, the kind of spot that works on all levels from lunch meeting to date night. Even better than the view of Irving: a seat near the large window that peeks into the kitchen. If the menu feels overwhelming, perhaps the best introduction comes during lunch, which features a $9.50 special that includes a main dish, soup, rice and a spring roll. This is a place where you could play it safe with your classic Chinese takeout order, but you’d be selling yourself short. Fortune House is a great place for stretching your palate or, if this cuisine is familiar to you already, an authentic taste of Shanghai cooking. Irving’s bountiful international food scene should welcome this spot with open arms and wallets.
