Crispy Lechon beat me to it. 🙂
On the way out for breakfast today, we saw that JJ Shanghai had closed shop. In its place is a new restaurant called the Szechuan Delicious Restaurant.
Some of you know that this location above as the incubator of some of the best restaurants in Richmond. This small lot right across from the Richmond Center on No 3 Road is where Chen’s Shanghai and Danny’s Wun Tun had the their humble beginnings. I can’t remember who else started off from here although I remember it being discussed at length on chowtimes before. Shanghai River too right? Can someone help jog our memory?
A lot of previous tenants here ended up moving to bigger and better locations. The tenant before this was JJ Shanghai. JJ bucked the trend and did not fare quite well. I was surprised that they survive as long as they did.
Let’s see if Szechuan Delicious will incubate to something big. They are opened for business just today. Their prices are so-so and comparable to other Szechuan restaurants in Richmond. If we have space in our stomachs for a full dinner tonight and I can convince the boys to go out for dinner, we might just take one for the team.
Here is their menu. You can click on it to show larger:
