Houston Press' Description
Shanghai Chinese Restaurant is a family-owned and -operated restaurant that cooks up traditional foods and also the classic Americanized dishes. The salted pork spareribs are a house specialty, and the shrimp and pork dumplings in soup are some of the best in the area. Be sure to have some lo mein while you're here, because it doesn't get any fresher. This place is B.Y.O.B., but there are many colorful Asian markets offering beer in the nearby strip malls.
Tips from foursquare
2010 Best of Houston® Winner: Best Chinese Restaurant: The salted pork ribs are a must-try here. Also get the wonton soup, a flavorful broth holding fresh dumplings packed full of ground pork!
I have three regular orders everytime I come home to Houston: the gong chao ngao hor, jew yim pie gwat, and dao mew. Can never go wrong with any three.
Get the salt n spicy pork spareribs, their specialty.
Great food, good prices.
Salted toasted baby beef short ribs are good.
