Shangri La, Belmont—Still Kickin’ It

Alcachofa Jun 25, 2007 11:03 AM

I haven’t seen any posts about Shangri La in Belmont recently. I’ve been fortunate enough to take food from here several nights over the past 6 months or so. Consistently good food. Especially the cellophane noodles with pork (listed under “vegetables” for some reason??) Last night I also had the chicken with spinach and garlic sauce—nice chicken pieces, well prepared spinach. Not quite as spicy as I thought it would be (it has a pepper next to the name). I’ve also enjoyed the double-cooked beef there in the past: I need to get that one again next.

    I've gotten takeout for a largish mixed-chowish group several times this year. No duds. Those cellophane noodles are a reliable spicy kick, but the nonspicy (and vegetarian so far as I can tell) Taiwanese stir-fried noodles are a winner too. Add the ginger chicken casserole (thanks Striper!) and the pork with cabbage and bean sauce. Not for takeout, the bean sprouts roll with sesame.

      Boneless tea smoked duck is fabulous.
      Homestyle egg drop soup is unique.
      turnip cakes wonderful.
      Everything else is great, but i have trouble getting beyond the duck.

        Another vote for home-style egg drop soup. As for the rest of the menu, we've never been disappointed. We haven't tried their hot pot yet. Have you?

        I eat there 2X a month.

        I have a dozen+ things on the menu I like.

        It continues to be a go to spot for me.

          Me, too.

          I'm sure I'm mangling all of these names, but I love the turnip cakes, homestyle egg drop soup, dry fried (or is it S&P fried) shrimp, chicken & spinach in garlic sauce, double cooked roast beef, and pork with preserved tofu & chives. Yum.

          I love it. Favorite dish: fish with dry bean sauce.
