Respond to Review of Shang Hai
Review: Shang Hai was hard to find, but worth the hunt. It's in a little shopping center off of Milpas, and Santa Barbara has limits on signs. When you get to where you expect it to be, turn in to the small parking lot and you'll find it. They have a good variety of 'soybean chicken', 'soybean beef', and tofu dishes - with a whole page of vegetarian options on their luncheon specials. Go to the back page of the menu to find their vegetarian luncheon options. Inside the back of the menu you'll find their vegetarian dinner items. Hoping to get a chance to go back to try one of their baked tofu dishes, but we had Sweet and Sour Soybean Chicken and their Soybean Beef with Broccoli. Both were very good. Their egg rolls don't have egg in them so are really spring rolls. Their soup option without egg was an onion soup that was really good. When we sat down, they brought us ice water with lemon and a pot of hot tea - that wasn't really hot, more like tepid. Our waitress had a limited command of the English language and struggled with understanding us. With only a short time in Santa Barbara, we will probably eat here again rather than trying another 'new' (to us) place.
