Andy Tang brought his vision of a Chinese-Vietnamese restaurant to Hutto in April 2019. At Fortune House, he serves rice dishes, noodle bowls and a variety of entrees as well as boba tea, a Taiwanese milk tea with flavored tapioca balls.

“Come try our food,” Tang said. “The way we make everything is a homemade style. We don’t put any imitation ingredients in there.”

Tang said one of his best-selling Vietnamese dishes is pho, a broth with noodles and thinly-sliced meat, topped with fresh basil, bean sprouts and jalapeños. Other customer favorites include vermicelli noodle bowls served with shredded carrots, cucumber, bean sprouts and crushed peanuts.

The menu also features dishes from Chinese cuisine, such as General Tso’s chicken, sesame chicken and orange chicken, Tang said.

A Fortune House original, Cajun Fried Rice is made with ingredients including crawfish and beef sausage, Tang said.


“We have some special items that are hard to find anywhere else,” Tang said.

Tang said he has owned several area restaurants, including Fortune Garden in Round Rock, which he owned until 2016. Customers familiar with Fortune Garden have sought him out in Hutto, he said, which helped to create a consistent customer base throughout his first year at Fortune House in Hutto.

“It surprised me because at the other restaurant, over by IKEA, it took about a year to build up customers,” Tang said. “But this one, I had customers starting on the first day, and we’ve seen customers increase more and more.”
