This bustling, two-story restaurant is always packed with locals who flock here for affordable and authentic Hong Kong-style cuisine, especially twice-fried noodles, wontons, claypot stews, and barbecued meat plates. Try the duck and pork meat plates. Also ask the waiter what seasonal vegetables are available for stir-fry, and choose a cooking style (stir-fried with garlic is always a great bet). There's rarely a wait for tables, but note that there isn't much ambience as it's a Chinese restaurant with tables placed closed together. There are tablecloths, however, so it's a touch above the normal street-side joint. Shanghai has three locations in all, with two in the former French Concession and one in Changning district. It’s open until 3:30 a.m. so it’s a great place for late-night snacks.
