Shanghai River – Dim Sum

In all honesty, I don’t really consider this visit a “dim sum” post despite coming here during the usual dim sum hour.  Sure, we ordered Shanghai Steamed Pork Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) – but you have to order these if you ever dine at Shanghai River.  People (including us) order this signature dish at dinner time too because it’s just so gosh darn good.

They are so confident that you’re going to order their XLB that they bring the vinegar dipping sauce to each table when you sit down.

We couldn’t decide what to order for lunch so we wound up picking the Pan Fried Rice Cakes with veggies.  The soft and toothsome sliced rice cakes are really filling.

While not the best Mui Choy Kau Yuk dish that we’ve had, the Sliced Pork with Preserved Veggies at Shanghai River is pretty decent and better than some others that we’ve tried.

I think the dinner menu has some more options like Taro Duck (either that or they stopped offering it).  Check out our last post on Shanghai River.

We noticed that a lot of tables were ordering up Yauh Ja Gwai (Chinese Donuts or Oil-Fried Ghosts) – next time we’re going to remember to try them out.
