Humuhumu’s description

Fong's Pizza opened in January 2009 as a partnership between Jeff Bruning (part owner of several other Des Moines bars) and Gwen Schlepphorst. Bruning had dreams of opening a tiki bar, Schlepphorst had dreams of opening a late-night pizza joint. Fong's Pizza took over a space vacated by King Ying Low, a Chinese restaurant that had operated for over one hundred years.
Fong's is a funky mix of Chinese, Polynesian and uniquely
American touches. Tiki drinks are served in tiki mugs from Tiki Farm (when secured with an appropriate deposit). Pizza is available by the slice until well past midnight; during lunch and dinner service a wider menu is available with some traditional Chinese and Polynesian offerings.

I really like Fong's. I wasn't happy with the pizza that I ordered. It was undercooked and kinda messy. The barmaid was also indifferent. She wasn't rude....just "meh...who cares....." Their drink menu is extensive and the prices are good. I wish they had more mugs to sell. The vibe is definitely tiki fused with Chinese flair. It's unique for sure.
