THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shanghai 1930, San Francisco, CA

THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Shanghai 1930 Restaurant Review

: Walking through the dramatic entranceway and descending the steps to this restaurant is like stepping back in time and across the Pacific. From the lacquered mahogany accents and the dark-wood booths with inlaid metal fittings to the Chinese area rugs, everything evokes the decadence of 1930s Shanghai. Start with such traditional side dishes as minced duck in lettuce petals, crispy and petite Nanking spring rolls, and short ribs doused in a sweet Chiangkiang sauce and sprinkled with sesame seeds and lemon zest. The dim sum “triple steamer” starter is another appetizing choice. Consider entrées like dry-wok-fired Szechuan chicken, tangerine beef with celery hearts or Hunan-style cured smoked pork belly with lop cheong sausage. The Peking duck is in the running for the best in the city.
