Shangri-La Takeout tonight.

phipsi102 | Jan 20, 2008 04:13 PM

Tried to order delivery from Shangri-La tonight- the woman i spoke with told me that she didn't have a delivery driver since about a year ago, so they don't deliver anymore. I said ok and ordered takeout. Based on recs from this board, we ordered Boneless Tea-Smoked Duck and Twice-Cooked Roast Beef, as well as our own additions of Hot and Sour Soup, Boiled Wontons in Spicy Sauce, and Shrimp Pad Thai.

The duck and beef were as amazing as promised- thank you CH'ers for posting your favorites! The hot and sour soup was excellent- it was nice that it was thinner than some hot and sour soups, even if not quite as spicy as I like. The boiled wontons were exactly what you would expect, in a sauce that built up in spiciness as we ate. The shrimp pad-thai was a bit dry, we will ask for extra sauce next time. The taste was great however.

All in all- great food. We have had the usual chinese mainstream dishes like orange chicken, general tso's chicken, mongolian beef, etc at shangri-la in the past, and they have always been good, but never extraordinary, so it was really nice to have a truly excellent meal. Thanks again to everyone!
