The two giant woks at Shanghai Gourmet are constantly hot and sizzling. Pull up a seat at this Chinese lunch counter and watch the cooks’ deft movements as they add meat, rice, noodles, fresh vegetables, and sauce. A few quick movements later and the finished dish is in front of you—generous plates of Szechuan flavors like General Tao’s chicken, chicken dumplings, wholesome shrimp, and chicken with asparagus over brown rice. The bold flavors are also found in vegetarian friendly favorites like the mixed vegetable and sesame bean curds.
