Everyone listen up! This is important: I have found my favorite place in Oakland Chinatown.
Oh, Shan Dong Restaurant, how I love you:
I love your complimentary hot and sour soup:
I love your special Shan Dong dumplings:
With your pork filling and special soy sauce:
But most of all, I love your noodles. I love them in every form. I love them in chicken chow mein:
I love them in sesame paste (my favorite so far) and in spicy meat sauce. I love how they're thick and Q and SO DELICIOUS.
I also love how your servers are so friendly even though you're a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown.
I do wish, however, that you would open on Mondays. Because I would like to get noodles on Mondays from time to time. Why must you deny me, Shan Dong Restaurant? Why?
