Shanghai Restaurant

Located along Yonge Street south of Finch, Shanghai Restaurant is the best place to go to for noodles with black bean sauce. Normally I head to Sunny Dragon for the noodles because of convenience since I can't parallel park but when I go with my boyfriend he loves to drive to Shanghai restaurant.

This restaurant is a Chinese-Korean fusion cuisine. Think the owners are Koreans since the patrons are mostly Koreans. The decor is very simple and basic. Fridays and Saturdays the restaurant is opened late till 2am in the morning.

There's more to this menu but since we only ordered 2 dishes I only snapped a picture of the page we were ordering from. We ordered #40 which is jajangmyun, stir fried noodles with black bean sauce, beef and seafood and #51 is a seafood noodle soup. I'm not sure what the Korean name is for the noodle soup but it was delicious. The soup is thick. It looks like the Chinese corn and egg drop soup but more tastier and flavorful.

As for the black bean noodles mmm mmm good as always. It never disappoints. The noodles for both dishes were freshly made not the ones you find in packages. An added bonus. It may not look so pretty in the picture but it definitely taste better than it looks.
