In the heart of multicultural Allston Village, Shanghai Gate's menu also offers a variety of options, ranging from uniquely Shanghai specialties to homestyle versions of some Chinese restaurant standards, with a changing list of specialties layered on top.
Soup: try "e-toe-she", main dish: "knee-en Gao" it's like a Gnocchi, but based on rice.
Hit and miss with the paradise mountain chicken.
Yummmm. Xiaolongbao is dreamy
Really good Chinese food. Comparable to Chinatown if not better!
Try the Sizzling Eggplant with Pork and Garlic Sauce
Omg!! This is the only place...ONLY PLACE in Boston that has 烤夫 (kao fu - soy cold dish)！ I can die happy now. Their lion head is pretty amazing too
The double bean curd with vegetables. Do it.
Good and not expensive
Get the duck
Those steamed pork buns!!
Authentic Shanghai cuisine! Must try sweet 'n' sour short rib
Their edamame and braised bok choi are outstanding.
Paradise Mountain Chicken is my recommendation. Paired with beef dumplings. Can't go wrong
Try uh… the fish
Food is amazing and very reasonable 4 what u pay .i think they should be open 7 days a week.i also think the people there are very patient. One more thing it's close by.
Sizzling Eggplant, diced noodle and whole tilapia are the way to go!
Xiao Long Bao (called steamed pork buns here) is a hallmark of Shanghai cuisine. The "soup" in these dumplings is liquid pork fat that surrounds a ball pork meat all encased in a delicate housing.
Closest thing to home cooking.
Tonight went with winter melon soup, fried rice, five spice tofu cols app. and beef and celery off the small special menu. ALL bomb!
Superbly executed Shanghai style dishes like lion's head meatball and xiao long bao manage to be just as flavorful as their Sichuan counterparts minus the heat. [Eater 38 Member]
The soup dumplings were tasty but small for the price. The Shanghainese food, however, is the real deal. Branch out!
I'm the mayor of this place for a good reason, you can't go wrong with anything here.Go on weekend for their brunch specials, really unique dishes like salty soy milk.
I'm the mayor bitcheees! No really this place is really on top of their game!
Close on Tuesday!
Lions head, steamed pork buns, tofu and fish hot pot, beef in brown sauce are all Shanghai specialties
Sweet and sour soup is the best I've tried
Try the fish dishes, you can't go wrong! Very reasonable prices.
Try the Tilapia in brown sauce. It's a whole tilapia enough for two and it is simply delicious.
