I been to this place twice for lunch, after playing volleyball at Skyline on Saturdays. I was so hungry both times. Man, they do not disappoint. Every dish is fresh, tasty, not as oily as other Chinese places, and not as salty. In fact, there are certain dishes that is very light and "clean" in flavor. Very similar to how you would cook at home, very hearty and healthy.

1st time (4 people, $15.00 per head)
Shanghai steamed dumplings
Pot stickers
Green onion pancakes
Sweet soy milk
Cucumber saled
Lion Head Meatballs
Some type of soup with ham and tofu in a bow tie
Sweet and sour riblets shanghai style
Minced Pork Noodles (Jia Zhang Mian)

2nd time (4 person, $15.00 each again!)
Shanghai Steamed Dumplings
Swee soy milk (2)
Eels with onion
Deep fried buns w/condensed milk...yummy.
Dan Dan Mien
Soft tofu dish spinkled with some chives? or was it Tofu with preserved veggies
Shredded Tofu with baby bok choy

The only disappointment was the Dan Dan Mien, it looked really flavorful and spicy with the all red sauce/soup base, but was very bland. I liked the noodles, very very similar to a ramen noodle, great texture and chew to it, and the width was exactlylike a ramen. My guess is that if we let the noodles soak a bit longer, there would be more flavor, but we were too hungry after player for 3 hours.
