Shanghai Cafe in Potomac

My wife, who grew up in Shanghai took a Shanghainese friend there yesterday and was very disappointed. She said the XLB were comparable to the frozen ones that you buy at an Asian grocery store. The Shanghai-style fish was no better. We won't go back. For Shanghainese fare around Baltimore-DC, Pacifica Cafe in Gaithersburg is the best we know.

  1. It was better a few years ago, but I agree that their XLB are no longer tops.

    They're good at Pacifica Cafe, but they're better at Burma Road!
