Shanghai quick-lunch

Shanghai seafood and dim sumThe crab in the soup with asparagus was real; “sea leg” is not an ingredient at Shanghai. In the tank were five beautiful lobsters, flown direct from Maine. Several parties were selecting items from the dim sum menu. At our table, the bounteous bowl of soup was enough to serve a half-dozen hungry people. The fried pork dumplings were generous. The pork with garlic sauce was redolent of ginger, ornamented profusely with tree ears, and hot enough in every sense to bring a tear to the eye. I’ll return to this place, which is one of those wonderful establishments open and serving continuously seven days a week, from opening at 11 am until closing at 10 pm (6718 Middle Fiskville Road, telephone 458-8088; “daily dim sum service”). There were four or five seafood specials, including those whole lobsters, and one of them was already sold out. Food came to the table promptly, and the glasses of tea were constantly refilled. This is a great place to catch a very fine workday lunch.
