I caught up for dinner with Karen and Michelle, whom I have met the ATFT's Photography Workshop back in July and this is the place that Karen has recommended to try as none of us have been here before.
I have seen Shanghai Tea Garden various times before (usually on my way to Lido or the Asian grocery stores nearby) but never had the chance to visit, until last Friday.
Shanghai Tea Garden has a really nice and traditional entrance look to its gate with red lantern hung at the top of the door frame, which I thought was very neat.
Shanghai Tea Garden isn't a very big place, and I was surprised to see that every single table they have in there was 'reserved' - "This place must be good" I thought to myself.
As none of us have been there before and there were quite a few choices to pick, we decided to ask for recommendations from the waitstaff and below are the things that we have ordered.
Xia Jiang Spicy Chicken and Handmade Noodles (medium size; serves 3) - This dish was strangely tasty and oh so filling! The noodle tastes great and they were quite addictive too ツ
Xiao Long Bao [Shanghai Dumplings] tasted great, just as good as Dragon's too ツ
I couldn't have a meal without some vegetables, so we ordered a dish of Fried String Beans with Garlic to share ツ
Overall our meal came to about $57.00 - $19pp for dinner in Northbridge is a bargain any day!
