Shanghai Lunch - Shanghai Garden Restaurant

Looking for delicious Shanghai cuisine?
This little hole in the wall down in Chinatown is where we like to go sometimes. It is a very small space with booths and connecting tables. It might be a little wait but it's worth it.
The service is good,very nice and attentive.
14A Elizabeth Street
New York, NY 10013
Chinatown 212-964-5640

Chilled Combination Dish :
marinated jelly fish - crunchy and fresh on the palette
boneless pig's trotter - taste like pastrami with gelatinous texture
drunken chicken - a nice pungent wine flavor with a fresh finish....what more can I say?
* this dish can be fun and tasty if you're on the adventurous side and
it's a perfect starter*

Another one of my favorite Shanghai dishes :
Stir Fried Rice Cakes with Shredded Pork, Preserved Vegetables and Bamboo shoots
The nice and chewy rice cakes with the crunchy texture from the bamboo shoots blends nicely with pickled and sweet vegetables. Sounds nice right?

Deep Fried Jumbo Shrimp with Mayo and caramelize walnuts.
They were huge, crunchy to bouncy with each bite.
Succulent shrimp we have here, so good..

 Wonton with hot chili and garlic sauce 
This was okay....they were too big for my liking and the sauce seem sweet then tangy
but might work for you

Who would like to join us next time?
