This restaurant is so far away from my house that it might as well be in the actual Shanghai. But I would happily travel to the actual Shanghai just for Chiang's Gourmet's homemade pan-fried noodles. I would travel to Shanghai on the back of a bad-tempered donkey. These noodles are my favorite food. They are chewy and salty and amazing. Get them with chicken.
