Shangri La: A Reason To Be In Midtown!

There’s a lot to see and do in Midtown Detroit, and this little restaurant must most certainly be on that to-do list.  It doesn’t disappoint for lunch or dinner in any of the essential aspects of an outdoor dining experience:  food, service, ambience, location, and price.  Not a fancy place by any stretch of the imagination, but a place to go for quality food made with the freshest of ingredients served by a fast and courteous staff.  It’s all there.  The dishes are authentic– and I speak from experience since I have had authentic Chinese fare in Hong Kong and Singapore as well as the most authentic Thai dishes in Bangkok. 

This most recent lunch visit resulted in a plate from the Dimsum tray of Chicken Curry-Puffs, followed by a Singapore Vermicelli Fry with Chicken and Shrimp, and the Spicy Flat Noodles with Shrimp— both entrees flavorful to the core.  Finally, for dessert, another selection from the Dimsum Tray:  light fluffy buns with some sort of sweet almond paste filling it the center.

High marks, all around!

  1. the buns with almond paste look delicious! they remind me of the buns with red bean paste i had in japan and really enjoyed. also, the restaurant looks so different in the day time!
