What is the menu like at Shanghai Terrace?

Answers from Our Experts (2)

Shanghai Terrace boasts a menu full of traditional Cantonese and Shanghainese dishes. You’ll find all of your favorites, from dim sum to a five-course Peking duck dinner. Plus, the menu is vegetarian friendly and, of course, you can request that a dish be tweaked to fit your dietary restrictions.

Start your meal by giving your taste buds a kick with the dim sum menu, which includes dishes such as shrimp spring rolls, duck dumplings, spicy beef gyoza and crab wontons. The Chicago restaurant isn’t afraid to fill your plate when it comes to entrées, so we suggest ordering a couple of courses to share with your party. Pick dishes such as kung pao chicken and Canton Wagyu beef fried rice. And as the cherry on top, the dessert menu features mouth-watering treats, such as tofu cheesecake and green tea crème brûlée.

The menu features modern and traditional Chinese cuisine incorporating fresh and seasonal ingredients. Cantonese and Shanghainese delicacies are available for lunch and dinner. We serve menu items such as “Monk Jumps Over The Wall,” also known as “Fo Tiao Qiang”, a 100-year-old recipe enjoyed in Fujian, China. We also serve a variety of meats, poultry, seafood, fish, noodles, rice, tofu, vegetables, dim sum and desserts. Lunch is served from May through October, weather permitting. Dinner is served year round.
