LA Weekly's Description

If you have a problem figuring out what to order from the enormous menu, you could do worse than to start with some of the restaurant's specialties, which are numbered 1 to 10 early in the book — probably skipping the shark-lip casserole and the expensive abalone dishes. The one dish on everyone's table is the Old Alley Pork, apparently named for a Shanghai street-vendor specialty: crocks of gorgeous, burnished chunks of braised pork transformed into pig candy, one piece of which would be sufficient to sustain a small family for a week. You will want an order of the smoked fish, a braised, smoked and fried preparation that likely has made it onto every Eastern Chinese menu in the world, but never this crisp or light. If you're into that sort of thing, the braised chicken feet in abalone sauce are as soft and juicy as a lover's tenderest sighs, and the casserole of crab roe is suave.

    Go straight for the crabs fried with chile and garlic; the crocks of Old Alley Pork, braised into pig candy; the smoked fish; the stone-pot fried rice; or the pan-fried pork buns.

    Jonathan Gold recommends: Old Shanghai braised pork, jellyfish with vinegar, pan-fried pork buns, xiao long bao, stir-fried green beans with chef sauce, stone-pot fried rice, tapioca soup with papaya.

    One of the best dim sum place in san gabriel area

    Next time I think I will skip the braised pork. It's excellent, but is it really worth the calories? The sesame fried pork soup dumplings are essential! The xiao long bao is not, but still good.

    Glamour decor for a Chinese restaurant. Hongkongese style Shanghai Cuisine. Serves dimsum at lunch time.
