Dinner at Shanghai Restaurant in San Gabriel
Shanghai Restaurant offers all the standard Shanghainese dishes you would expect including lion head, seafood casserole, mapo dofu, dou miao, pork belly with pickled vegetables, sauteed bamboo shoots, beef with peppers, fried fresh tofu, and eggplant with garlic sauce. Fish lovers will love their tender and very spicy white fish. And who can pass up the popular Shanghai xiao long bao or "special pork steamed buns" or some derivative of this popular soup dumpling, with its savory pillows of ground pork with a thin but sturdy wrapper enveloping the filling with a couple teaspoons of brothy, rich soup. And a Chinese dinner wouldn't be complete without roast duck or pork spare ribs. Shanghai Restaurant is conveniently located in the 99 Ranch Market Shopping Center on the second floor. Please note that this event will be family-style dining where we will split the bill evenly among the attendees. Most dishes will have meat or shrimp and some dishes may be slightly on the spicy side so if you are a strict vegetarian or vegan, this event may not be for you. Please bring CASH to make bill settlement easier. Cost per person is estimated at $30-35 per person. If you haven't attended our events before, I may contact you before the event to confirm your attendance, so please read your Meetup emails. If I don't hear back from you, I will likely cancel your RSVP and give your spot to someone on the waiting list. SENSE has not implemented a deposit system to reserve an event spot as many other groups have. Update your RSVP regularly if your plans change. If you cancel 24 hours or less prior to the event, you will be considered a "No Show". Don't be a "No Show" which isn't cool and keep us from implementing a "deposit " or nonrefundable fee system!! Hope you can join us for a little Shanghainese cuisine during Mid-Autumn Festival.

What we're about

Welcome to all you fun lovin' social peeps!

To keep up with the times, our group name may have changed but the acronym and group charter remain the same. We are an eclectic social group who get together for conversation and comraderie with people close to our own age. The group is geared primarily towards the Baby Boomers and designed to meet and to get together with others exploring different exciting and fun community, social, and musical events available to us in and around Los Angeles and Orange Counties. We do breakfast, lunch and dinners, go to movies, art events, sporting events, wine tastings, and theatre, go on vacations, clubbing, hold cooking classes, plan hikes, exercise, and the list goes on and on. We are definitely more than just a foodies group though we do love to eat and especially at a bargain!

We welcome all newcomers to experience amazing fun adventures. Please note, though, that we reserve the right to limit the number of new members into the group to those that know either the leadership organizers or fellow active members to increase the enjoyment and participation in events for all our existing members. Please upload a picture, include your name, and let us know what you like to do for fun and you might actually see it scheduled as an event.
