Shanghai Lu / 上海灘酒家

August 3, 2014

#17 上海小龍包 Shanghai style dumpling (Xiao long bao) - 2

J's comment > not bad; firm wrapper, thin and delicate yet retained elasticity; good jus; meat just a tad mushy but firm nonetheles

#89 招牌改良擔擔麵 House special deluxe Szechuan (tan tan) spicy noodle soup - 2

J's comment > not bad; strong peanut butter flavor; noodles very soft; slightly spicy; decent amt of meat; 'soup' could have been a bit thinner (too thick for my liking, though that's the way it's supposed to be)

#43 甜粢飯 Sweet stuffed sticky rice - 2

J's comment > not bad; rice texture decent, not too sticky; chinese donut not not too dense, slightly fluffy; tad too much rice to chinese donut though

#44 甜豆漿 Sweet soy milk - 2

J's comment > not too sweet; soy flavor strong; aftertaste of the soy clingy on the tongue

#1 鮮蝦餃 Shrimp dumplings (har gao) - 2

J's comment > decent but nothing extraordinary; skin wrapper stayed on throughout, didn't rip or fall apart; shrimp not too flavorful though

#33 牛肉巻餅 Sliced beef pancake - 2

J's comment > pancake roll not too dense; needs more beef though

Steamed creamy bun - 2

J's comment > creamy flavor not liquid-y at all, flavor OK though; bun your avg 'BBQ pork bun' type bun; Fraser Court's much better

Extra Comment
This used to be the Golden Great Wall which closed down (I think I got food poisoning from it).
