Venue Info

While dumplings and trays of dim sum are typically served glittering with hot grease and MSG, the plates at Bob's Shanghai 66, are tasty, inexpensive, and if you can believe it -- healthy. Prepared in a white-tiled open kitchen (implying the chefs don't have any oil-saturated secrets), you can watch the skilled cooks hand-stretch the dough for soup dumplings and the spot's famous pan-fried pork buns. The menu -- two full pages crammed with endless oddly-titled entrees -- is certainly intimidating, but with a variety of plates teeming with buttery pork belly, shredded snow-peas, chili-glazed shrimp, and not an ounce of excess oil, it's hard to go wrong (unless you decide against ordering the soup dumplings).
