Asian Grill in North Raleigh

I was reading The China Star newspaper a few days ago and saw the ad about this restaurant. The ad mentions authentic Shanghai cuisine and I know there is basically no restaurant in this area that offers Shanghai style Chinese food.

The restaurant has just opened for couple of weeks and is located right next to the Raleighwood Cinema on Falls of Neuse Road. Along with Shanghai style food you get your typical Chinese food and Sushi.

The most famous Shanghai style food would probably be the Shao Luong Bao, or known as Soup Dumplings. Basically it's a steamed dumpling with lots of juices inside. The juice makes the dumpling "soupy". At this restaurant you get six made to order pork soup dumplings for 6.95 and crab for 7.95.

The Baos were well made and not too overly soupy so you won't get yourself squirted, scorched or both. Actually there is a tutorial on the menu showing you how to eat them so there is no excuse for accidents/mistakes/laundry mishaps!

What I ordered today:
1. Hot and Sour Soup
2. Scallion Pancakes
3. Soup Dumplings

In sum, food was well made. The Soup Dumplings alone are worth the trip. When you get over there, please don't order stuff like Chicken Broccoli or Shrimp Lo Mein. Rather be adventurous, read through the back of the menu and give the Shanghai stuff a try.
