Cheap Eats 2011: Shandong

The site of this new Chinese restaurant in the Hollywood district has had multiple incarnations, probably because there’s little parking and the location is not pedestrian-friendly. Fortunately, the latest tenant’s northern Chinese cuisine has proved enough of an attraction that Shandong appears quite capable of outlasting its more short-lived predecessors, as evidenced by a full restaurant most weekend nights. The service is friendly and brisk even on a busy night. The spring rolls (four for $5.50) are the tastiest starter on a strong list. And the entrees, with the exception of the dry sautéed asparagus ($9, and a little too dry), are equally successful. Must-tries include the spicy dry fried calamari ($10) and black bean chicken ($9).
