If you go here more than twice, Ted, the owner will know your name and greet you with a huge smile every time you come in the door, and remember your favorite foods.
I have been coming here for years, for lunches and dinners, and will tell you that everything on their menu is excellent. At the top of the Train To Flavortown, is their Singapor Rice Noodles or Chow Mei Fun, as it is called on the Mainland. It is so good that I have driven two hours for a bowl and have taken friends and clients here just to sample the wonderful curried noodles, packed with shrimp, pork, chicken, egg and veggies. Ted will make it to order so if you like it spicy and hot, just ask and it will be the best you have ever had.
If you're really lucky, Ted's wife Kristen, will serve you. She makes you feel like family and is probably the best server I have ever had at any establishment.
If you don't see it on the menu, just ask for it and you will be surprised that they will make it for you, to order,and it will come out of the kitchen better than any of your previous favorite places.
I have enjoyed most of what is on and off of the printed menu and have my favorites but will tell you that everything is prepared with the utmost attention and if you ask, it will be tailored to your individual taste.
When you go there, and meet Ted and Kristen, you become family. Sit, relax, and enjoy the best ShangHai has to offer. This is my favorite Oriental food eatery and I have been to the downtown markets in Tiawan, with my bowl and chop sticks, and this kitchen can match any of them.
