Chinese: Shanghai

Giang Nan
306 N Garfield Ave #A12, Monterey Park. 626-573-3421
The finest Shanghai cuisine I've had in L.A. Fish head casserole with rice noodles, long-cooked pork knuckle, and a glutinous rice ball dessert that could make a grown man cry.

Din Tai Fung
1108 S Baldwin Ave, Arcadia, 626-574-7068
Godhead spot for xiao long bao (small soupy dumplings) that are highly delicate and completely wonderful. Fish dumplings are if anything, even better plus there are some Taiwanese soul foods like fried rice. Essential.

Mei Long Village
301 W. Valley Blvd., No. 112, San Gabriel; (626) 284-4769
Solid and satisfying Shanghainese place with great soup dumplings and three-cup chicken.

Green Village
140 W Valley Blvd, San Gabriel, 626-288-5918
Not knowing what to order I nonetheless had a great meal here, with red-cooked fish tail a highlight. Shanghainese.

I am coming over to LA for a break and it was great to find your site and some unbaised reviews by someone who knows their food and how to write.
