Fortune Garden, a restaurant/carryout hidden away in a strip shopping center, is a bit difficult to characterize. Its inconsistencies can find you singing its praises for a superb entree while, at the same time wondering why it can't do better with a simple staple like pork fried rice.
One of two hits we had there one recent evening was an appetizer of Hawaiian beef sticks (four for $4.30). The long thin strips of beef served kebab-style with pineapple and a cherry were meaty, tender and tasty.
The Hunan Chicken entree ($8) won compliments, too. The chicken was tender, and even more delightful were the fresh vegetables -- broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, snow peas and baby corn -- that accompanied it. The sauce had just the right kick to be spicy but not too hot.
