At the corner of Madero and Ocampo is a very interesting little restaurant called FFYY Choy Restaurant chinese cantonese. It has been there under the present ownership for the past seven years and chooses to open from noon until 7pm, daily.
The dining room is pleasantly air conditioned, not too cold or hot and the color of the interior is predominantly pink with red accents. Not pepto pink but bakery box pink. All in all a very nice presentation. In chinese color symbolism, pink is the color for marriage and red is the color of good luck, happiness, joy, life's energy, and for brides. Click on the title to see a list of other chinese symbols and their meanings.
Food's not bad, either. Take it to go or enjoy the dining room service. There's plenty of help and a brisk business so no worries about questionable age on the pollo. The water is filtered thanks to a series of Culligan in-line water filters. Speaking of food, my almond chicken had the real Marcona almonds in it, the fat stubby almonds that are so tasty.
FFYY Choy, open 12-7 every day at the corner of Madero and Ocampo

- Before gaining control of my life, I created pastries for some cool places in California: San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Brix Restaurant in Napa and The Lodge in Sonoma. Now I am the chef/owner of Pan D' Les bakery in La Paz. My personal favorite is the Multigrano loaf, full of crunchy seeds and a nice chewy crust.
