Good Taste Shanghai Cuisine, Toronto

Good Taste Shanghai Cuisine

My mom, Beebs, and I recently took a quick one day trip to Toronto for a family reunion. We have a pretty big family, so it was great (and rare) to see everyone all under one roof. We ate so much Chinese food on our trip that I don't want to see or eat Chinese food for a while. Our first stop was at Good Taste Shanghai Cuisine.

This is a fairly new Shanghai restaurant that opened less than a year ago. They offer many dim sum dishes, and over 150 dishes overall. They have a large flat screen TV in the middle of the restaurant, and a soccer game was playing when we walked in.

The first dish we offered was a soup filled crab and pork xiao long bao. The crab meat was a nice change, and the soup in the dumpling was incredibly flavorful.

Strongly recommended by the owner was the house special bean curd skin. This was good but not the amazing dish that he advertised.

Look at the different layers of the bean curd skin.

Next was the pan fried pork buns. The dough was fresh, and these buns also had soup in them.

One of my favorites is the Shanghai chow mein. This is best when it is mixed with tons of hot sauce. Their noodles had a strong red vinegar taste.

Last dish of the meal was the pan fried chive dumplings. I find chives are an acquired taste. People either love it or hate it.

Overall, I recommend this place. The ingredients are fresh, their staff is friendly, and the place is nice and clean.
