About

Angela Mao, the female Bruce Lee, owns this restaurant.

Angela Mao, aka Lady Kung Fu and the Female Bruce Lee, starred in more than 30 kung fu movies in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and was the first female kung fu star. She then disappeared. She was discovered quietly running restaurants in New York, including this Taiwanese one. This information is from the New York Times, 11/6/16, Metro pp. 1, 6 (http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/06/nyregion/searching-for-lady-kung-fu.html?_r=0). The article names other eateries she owns, but the only one I could verify as still open is New Mei Hua, 133 Roosevelt Ave., Flushing, NY 11354.

Comments : Yesterdays New York Times has a follow-up article at Metro p. 2. The original article caused many fans to visit Nan Bei Ho hoping to meet her, and she has received fan mail from around the world. She has now allowed the hanging of some memorabilia at one of her restaurants, Guo Ba Inc, in Bayside, according to the article.
