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.
|Fluffy Pork BBQ Buns
|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.
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.
