Shanghai Rose

I woke up back in Los Angeles this morning after being in Tucson for four months. The first thing that popped into my head was, "Where am I going to eat?"  This was serious.  I had a few spots in mind, but the bae suggested a new Dim Sum restaurant that had recently opened up in Studio City.  It was only three months old!  The other Dim Sum restaurant was 45 minutes away from us, and Shanghai Rose was only 15 minutes away.  We had to go.


The front of the restaurant

Yayyy parking!  $1.50 for the first hour, who knows after that.  We were hangry.





Shanghai Rose's owner hired 100% Hong Kong chefs to pleasure your palate.
You can see them in action with the design of an open kitchen.

Here she comes!  And literally with a snap of a finger...




The Pork Dumplings were the first thing we pulled off of the cart.  It was a very generous and juicy piece of pork.

The sticky rice was very sticky and had a nice little crunch.  Served hot and goey.  Makes for a great starter and has a sweet after-taste.
My fav were the Lobster Dumplings.  Juicy, fat pieces.





Sautéed Green Beans

Bae's fav were Hot and Spicy Calamari.  Tornadoed and crunchy with a light lime tapenade, topped with shaved jalepeño.  

Bean Curd

 

Shanghai Rose was a great experience overall.  Nice date spot! Great place to get together with a large group and just chow down on some delicious flavors in a comfortable environment.

Price for two people.  Like I said, we were hangry.


Shanghai Rose serves Dim Sum 7 days a week starting at 11:30am till 9:30pm from their Dine-In menu.  Every Saturday and Sunday you'll find Dim Sum carts up and down the aisles of the restaurant.

Belly full and very satisfied.  I will be back!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
