Shanghainese Food at Southern Mini Town 小南國 in San Gabriel

Little hole-in-the-wall in the same mini-mall with the ever so popular Golden Deli.  The food it tasty; the prices are fair; but compared to other similar restaurants, the portion sizes for some of the dishes were on the paltry side.

One of their popular dishes is this huge pork hock, served over a bed of greens and a dark sauce made with soy sauce and honey.  The hock is cooked down well, the meat just falls off the bone at the slightest touch.

Though their Pan Fried Shanghai Rice Cakes were tasty, the soup dumpling (xiao long bao) and the pan fried pork buns were decent, but you can easily get them better elsewhere…
