Shanghai No. 1 Seafood Village

Could this be the most opulent Chinese restaurant in the SGV? While the walls are lined with red velvet and the ceilings hung with ornate chandeliers, this Shanghai-style banquet hall is still far more reasonable than most restaurants on the Westside. For dinner, try the shimmering cubes of "Old Alley" pork belly braised in clay pots, pan-fried sesame buns filled with sweet broth, or whole Dungeness crab fried with mounds of chile and garlic.
