Today, we’re turning the spotlight on one of our favorite establishments that’s making waves in Fall River: Mr. Chen.
Why Shop Local?
One of the most enriching things about living in a community like ours is the chance to support and grow with local businesses. When you shop local, you’re not just buying a product or service.
You’re investing in your neighbors’ dreams, fueling the local economy, and helping cultivate a unique community culture. Every dollar spent locally resonates throughout the community, ensuring a vibrant and connected Fall River.
Mr. Chen: A Fresh Entrant With a Familiar Touch
Mr. Chen opened its doors last summer, and it has become a go-to destination for many, including myself. What makes this establishment special is the heart behind it.
The owner isn’t new to the local culinary scene. After offering his services in various local establishments, he took the bold step of starting his very own restaurant right here in Fall River.
Combining a unique blend of Chinese and Portuguese cuisines, Mr. Chen says the community of Fall River is to thank for his success—but we know it’s his innovation and great service that have really pushed the restaurant to new heights since its opening last year.
It’s this commitment to the community and passion for culinary excellence that has earned Mr. Chen our special “Love Local” spotlight.
Why We’re Raving About Mr. Chen
It’s all about the food! Every dish screams freshness and flavor. Each bite is a testament to the meticulous preparation and passion poured into the cooking. It’s no surprise that in such a short time, they’ve managed to capture the hearts (and stomachs!) of so many locals, including me.
Visiting Tips for the Eager Foodie
Being a local favorite in town, there’s often a wait—but trust me, the patience pays off in flavor dividends.
My suggestion? Order a bit earlier than you might usually. And while every dish I’ve tried is a delight, the Coconut Shrimp is simply divine!
Don’t stop there: the cacoila wantons, crab rangoon, fried rice, and chourico lo mein are must-tries.
Deepening Our Community Ties With Every Bite
At the heart of every community are the businesses that give it its unique flavor, and Mr. Chen has already become a cornerstone of Fall River’s culinary landscape.
The journey from being a dedicated employee in various local eateries to opening a restaurant is nothing short of inspirational. It symbolizes growth, dreams realized, and the immense potential within our community.
When we choose to dine at establishments like Mr. Chen, we’re doing more than satiating our hunger. We are bolstering the entrepreneurial spirit, nurturing local talent, and forging deeper connections with those around us. Each visit is an affirmation of our commitment to the growth and prosperity of Fall River.
