"The Kwan family transformed a little grocery store into an Asian eatery in 1971. Today, Edward Kwan and his brother Don manage the Shanghai restaurant in Ottawa alongside their siblings and parents. While continuing to serve their patrons with delicious Cantonese and Szechuan food, the restaurant on Somerset Street has become a hub for art shows, dance parties, and disco bingo.
The restaurant is best known for its karaoke nights every Saturday hosted by the family’s very own China Doll. A small sample of China Doll’s flamboyant accessories can be seen here." https://www.capitalheritage.ca/virtual-exhibits/evocative-objects-artefacts-unfolding-neighbourhoods/china-doll/
