Chesterfield's Urban Kitchen builds on sister restaurant Share Sweet's menu with Chinese American classics

The sister restaurant to Olivette-based Share Sweet builds on its forerunner’s boba tea-and-dessert formula with a lengthy menu that includes shareable hot pot-style soups for the center of the table, Cantonese dim sum, the occasional Chinese American takeout favorite like crab Rangoon, and more.

The shredded pork with bao is Urban Kitchen’s take on “fish fragrance” pork (don’t be misled – the dish doesn’t actually contain fish), a classic Chinese dish that offers an addictive blend of sweet, gently spicy and sour notes. It’s equally enjoyable with rice or stuffed into the pillowy bao buns that are served on the side.

Also, don’t miss the wontons with red chile sauce: pork dumplings bathed in a sharp, spicy and slightly smoky chile oil and topped with chopped cilantro and green onion.
