Review of Shanghai Gate

Hrm, not much to say...

Fujian Gal did not like it all, and I can't really differ from her. We ordered the xiao long bao and they did not task fresh or authentic. Fujian Gal thought they were pre-made frozen bao that was just heated up. Not sure if she is right, or if the kitchen staff is just lousy. We also ordered the spicy beef--beef, celery, pepper--and a chicken dish that resembled the chicken dish we got at the sichuan place on Washington. I have to agree, the sichuan place has a better chicken dish. The one at Shanghai Gate tasted overcooked, and it had an odd taste too it; not sure if it was the oil, or some ingredient. I thought it tasted like oil contaminated with burnt scraps. I don't think either of us will be returning there...
