Shan Dong Mandarin Restaurant in Oakland's Chinatown: 9 December 2015


I read a review of Shan Dong Mandarin Restaurant. What caught my attention in the review was that the restaurant provides its customers a choice of machine made noodles or hand made noodles. I found out where the restaurant is located; it is only about four blocks from the BART 12th Street Oakland City Center Station. I could easily travel to the restaurant via BART and not have to get into my car... I liked that. 


The restaurant is located at 328 10th Street. The restaurant is on the ground floor at the far left. Click on the image to see the full-size photo.
As soon as I entered the restaurant, I saw this woman making noodles. Click on the image to see the full-size photo.

How could I not try her noodles! Click on the image to see the full-size photograph.
I ordered a serving of Hot and Spicy Chow Mein Noodles with vegetables. It looks appetizing, but it was somewhat of a disappointment. The chow mein was not spicy, and the dish was too oily. The service was good, and I am not sorry I tried the restaurant. Click on the image to see the full-size photo.
