Thanks to TonyC for this one. Better than Shanghai No. 1 at every dish except for the pan fried buns. Every table was packed by 630pm on Saturday.

We had:

-Trio of medicinal soups. Duck, chicken, and squab. The duck and chicken were the favorites.

-Crab XLB. A bit leaky but still filled with plenty of juice. Similar to J&J but with a much thinner wrapper.

-Pan fried buns. Only real miss. Same as your average pan fried buns anywhere in LA. No soup on the inside. Easily better at SN1.

-Braised pork. Pretty F-ing awesome. Really flavorful. Fattier and more tender than the SN1 version. Real winner.

-Crab with rice cake. Also much more flavorful than the SN1 version. Crab was very fresh. Ended up with 3 claws. Odd.

-Sautéed pea leaves. Very tender. Not too oily. Well done.

Service as attentive as Elite or Sea Harbour. 2 bottles, no corkage.

Steamed fish at other tables look good, so did the lions head.

We are all looking forward to going back.
