Your Culinary Rosebud

StriperGuy | Apr 11, 2011 08:59 AM

This came up on the Boston Board.

Myamily legend has it that the first place I ever ate at as a two year old was the Shanghai Cafe in NYC.

Amazing old school Cantonese place actually.

As we discussed it on the Boston board I realized that essentially my entire life has been a quest to refind the lost: Hot and Sour Soup, Beef with Black Bean Sauce, and Shrimp with Lobster Sauce of my lost childhood.

The place was amazing, and the 70 something year old waiters sweet as could be.

Another hound on the Boston Board chimed in that her father used to drive from CT to eat at the long lost Shanghai Cafe.

But for me, the Shanghai Cafe will always be my culinary Rosebud.

Please chime in with you own...
