Our Place Shanghai 55 btw Lex +3rd

Work in this neighborhood now and was tired of Grand Sichuan on 2nd. Tried Our Place at lunch today. 8.35 for the Chicken w/ Garlic Sauce americanized lunch special-- comes w/ white rice and 2 dumplings. Decent quantity of food-- the dumplings are a nice change from the egg roll/soup/soda option that is common.

The chicken comes cloaked in a thick, brown, slightly sweet sauce-- not particularly spicy though theres a mild buzz. There are thin strips of red and green peppers, diced water chestnuts as well, that provide a nice crunch beside the shredded chicken. The garlic flavor is a mellow hint beneath the surface flavors of the sauce. The dumplings weren't quite hot, and the wrappers were slightly gummy making me suspect they were cooked and held, but they were jampacked with meat and had a fresh, clean flavor.

I'll definitely go back to try their traditional Shanghai dishes, which sound lovely.
