Southern Mini Town Restaurant 小南國 (Shanghainese)- SAN GABRIEL, CA

Digging up some old eateries. We visited LA in Dec – Jan and our friend took us around for good food.

We were taken to 小南國 Southern Mini Town Restaurant in San Gabriel, Ca, specialize in Shanghaiese Cuisines. This place is tiny and packed. You literally elbow each other. But food was good.

There were 5 of us, and we ordered 7 dishes.

Shanghai Thick Noodle Chow Mein: noodle was perfect al-dente.
