Shang Ming Restaurant Opens In San Gabriel Until 3am

Chandavkl | Sep 12, 2012 12:13 PM

Thanks to JThur01 for the tip that Shang Ming Restaurant had replaced the infamous N.T. Dumpling House a couple of doors down from Mei Long Village. This might be described as a Shanghai style noodle/dumpling,pancake/bun house with Dongbei and Sichuan entrees to boot. The pan fried dumplings are unlike any I've seen before. Besides being fried in a glob connected on the bottom, the dumplings are not the typical medium sized footballs, but rather large and oblong, reminiscent of the shape of papaya slices. And the thick and chewy wrapper is terrific. Also a large number of beef options. Not just beef rolls and beef pancakes but also pan fried beef dumplings, "soup/steamed" beef dumplings, premium beef buns (mantou buns), beef XLB, and beef fried buns. And they open until 3am, convenient like their predecessor for SGV politicos who wish to carry on after hour activities. Address is 301 W. Valley Bl., #110.
