Shanghai No. 1 Seafood Village
Where we've featured it
When you walk into this dim sum spot in the SGV, it might seem like they’ve mistaken you for someone wearing a crown - there are red velvet walls, black velvet banquet tables, and a full binder of menu items. Despite the Alice In Wonderland feel, there’s no better place for some last-minute dim sum. Everything is family-style, and the Old Alley Pork - stewed pork in a super sweet sauce - is going to have you investigating that alley behind your house for more secret delicious stewed meat. Don’t do that.
Our Favorite Dishes: Old Shanghai Pork Dumplings, Stone Hot Pan Fried Rice, Pork Braised In The Alley, Tapiocal Soup
Shanghai No. 1 Seafood is on the fancier side - prices are higher and the whole place looks and feels like an upscale Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. While the space is quirky (yes, that’s red velvet covering the walls), the menu is filled with crowd-pleasers like pan fried rice and excellent pork dumplings, and everything is served family-style, making it ideal for big groups.
