The city is no stranger to fancy restaurants opening casual spinoffs. Mamahuhu is one of them—it’s a solid counter-service spot in the Richmond. The minimalist restaurant from the Mister Jiu’s team focuses on classic Chinese American dishes like kung pao chicken, broccoli beef, and sweet and sour cauliflower that maintains a nice crunch. Not every dish is a runaway hit (the fried chicken sandwich had good flavor, but the meat was overcooked). Still, it's easy to have a great meal, especially since the portions are generous and everything on the menu costs less than $17. Plus, the bright space, with its modern horse and tiger prints and colorful tiles everywhere, is a nice place to spend a weeknight.
