One of the great things about being here in the L.A. area is the wide variety of Chinese regional cuisines that are represented, certainly the widest in the U.S. However, there might be a thing as being too authentic. Another Shenyang style restaurant has opened up, this one named Northern Chinese Restaurant, in the same complex as 888 Seafood at 8450 E. Valley Bl. in Rosemead. The first item listed in the appetizer section of their menu is "Shenyang Fake Dog Meat." I imagine it's probably made out of soybean or something like that, but I still get the willies just thinking about it. Other items not often see on local menus include fried sea snails, fried cucumber and sauteed boar. There are also several varieties of Shenyang dumplings and corn pastries. The owner describes himself as a "China Great Chef Master" and the dish I had (called "BBQ fish slices" but really just sweet and sour fish) was quite good.
