Age Appropriate: All Ages
I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween and that your family feels ready for the crazy 2 months ahead of us! With the time change on Sunday, we felt hungry for dinner quite early and we headed to a neighborhood favorite: Shanghai River Restaurant on Westheimer. A friend of mine has been going there since she was a little girl and especially loves it when it is time to celebrate the Chinese New Year.
The staff is friendly and present and their bathroom was clean and spacious. It is family owned and you know you are in good hands when the recipes come from the personal chef of the former president of Taiwan! Check out their website for a complete story of this amazing family!
Our dinner was very satisfying but I loved the atmosphere best. It felt very family oriented and welcoming. We ran into friends who were also enjoying their Sunday dinner there. My son plays baseball with their sons and the eldest was very happy to share his fortune with our son: You will eat more fruits and vegetables! Is there any better fortune for a child the day after Halloween?? We all shared a good laugh and were ready for good things after our dinner at Shanghai River! I hope your family will feel as welcomed and satisfied as ours there!
See you next week for another culinary adventure!
