Fu Lam Mum shutters temporarily in Mountain View

Uploaded: Apr 27, 2017

Fans of longtime Mountain View Chinese restaurant Fu Lam Mum have likely noticed that the restaurant recently closed for remodeling. Have no fear: Owner Ben Quan hopes to reopen the restaurant by August or September, he said Thursday.

Quan, who also owns the property at 153 Castro St., decided to convert a second-floor mezzanine previously used by the restaurant to office space. Tubular Labs, a video content company that currently occupies a third floor of the building, plans to expand into the remodeled space, Quan said. City building permits show they intend to add 2,335 square feet to the second floor.

Fu Lam Mum will remain on the first floor.

Quan first opened Fu Lam Mum steps away in a different location on Castro Street close to two decades ago. He also owns Hong Kong Bistro at 147 Castro St.

Stay tuned for Fu Lam Mum's reopening this fall.
