Shandong serves good noodle dishes and some great handmade dumplings - namely, the pork with cabbage and the shrimp and pork with leek. Their beer selection won’t blow you away, but the massive, frosted mugs of light beer are just what you want alongside the filling and flavorful dumplings. And don’t leave without getting the huge scallion pancake - with beef, egg, and fried dough wrapped up inside. Weirdly, it also feels a bit like a thrift shop in here, with an assortment of chairs, tables, and glassed-in memorabilia all around you in the dining room.
