Mrs Mo Reviews: Lo Fatt Chow in Ringoes

It’s hard to miss the Rt 31 billboard for Lo Fatt Chow in the Ringoes/Flemington area-not for its design, but for its name. The menu is equally intriguing: healthy Chinese food made with “No Trans fat, No Grease, No MSG.” As a health conscious woman/mom/person, I was excited to take our small family out for a healthy meal.

Lo Fatt Chow is primarily a take-out/delivery eatery, but they do have some tables for dining in. The menu is similar to other Chinese restaurants, but what makes it unique is the owner’s commitment to offer healthy choices and alternatives as part of Hunterdon County’s healthy initiative called “Eat Out, Eat Smart.”

Lo Fatt Chow is a perfect dining option for those with special dietary restrictions or needs. If you’re looking for the flavor that normally comes with higher fat and salt, then Lo Fatt Chow may not be for you, but it’s hard to turn down a dish like their popular Chicken Curry (which I had) or Spicy Szechuan dinners.

As far as options for little kids go, I would stick to the main menu because the kids’ choices are mostly fried food. My 1 ½ year old actually shared my curry noodles with me and loved them!

Perhaps what is most appealing about Lo Fatt Chow is their partnership with the Hunterdon Medical Center for the countywide health initiative. Beverly Manganelli, RD, CDE, the co-chair of the Weight/Physical Activity Action Team, helped establish the program which has partnered with 6 other local restaurants.

“We want to give patrons options of healthy choices in the area,” said Manganelli. “If someone wants oatmeal for breakfast instead of eggs and bacon, they can.”
