We finally made it to Uncle Cheung's Shanghai Cuisine today for dim sum. I was hesitant because Shanghai isn't a dim sum city but what they've done is take the best of Shanghai snack foods (dumplings, steamed buns, pastries, unbelievable soups, noodles, etc.)and offered them as a full two-page dim sum menu. In addition to this they offer a full menu of authentic Shanghainese fare for lunch and dinner. The room was full and I heard a lot of Shanghai accented Mandarin being spoken which we took as a good sign. We had:
Sweet silken bean curd soup: The best I've ever had.
Pork and crab dumplings: More crab meat than pork, nicely moist. Good but I wouldn't go out of my way to order it again.
Pork and Leek dumplings: Yum! Super juicy, heavy on the chives, excellent filling to wrapper ratio.
Sticky rice xiao mai: tasty filling but tough to eat without spilling.
Shanghai Lo Mein: Perfect. Not only was this scrumptious but it brought me back 20 years to the year I spent in Shanghai, sitting on a stool at my favorite street stall, eating this very dish. Order this!
We can't wait to go back both for dinner and more dim sum! It is on rte. 9 east bound almost directly across from Sichuan Gourmet.
