Any Shanghainese restaurants in SD?

More specifically, I'm suddenly craving 苔條黃魚 (tai tiao huang yu) - also known as seaweed fish beignets(?). Has anyone found a restaurant that serves this?

  1. No.

    You need go north. There are two places in San Gabriel Valley where I've seen this dish 苔條黃魚, Shanghai No. 1 Seafood (San Gabriel) and Golden Shanghai Restaurant (Alhambra).

      I think I've had it at Shanghai No. 1 - definitely a good recommendation. Chang's Garden (Arcadia) also does it well. I'll check out the other place next time I'm in LA.

      1. you can call Chef Chin - they have a chef from Shanghai so maybe they will prepare it special for you....
