Food glorious food – Shanghai

Shanghai food

Shanghai has its own particular cuisine which you can enjoy as ‘fast food’ or fine dining.  Some of the delights in this selection from our week in Shanghai include tea leaf smoked egg with caviar, braised Shanghai cabbage and black mushrooms, Shanghai dumplings, camphor smoked duck and clams in savoury custard.  The dumpling meal (bottom right hand corner) was A$7 for two and included a bottle of beer between us.  The most expensive meal (on our last night) was at Ye Shanghai and cost A$70 for two with a bottle of Californian Zinfandel. 

Shanghai is hosting Expo 2010 from May to October.  The city centre will be alive with a renewed Bund promenade enhancing its already modern architecture and infrastructure.  Worth a revisit I reckon.

  1. Wow, what a variety, Lynn! I love siu mei (or however they spell it in Shanghai–the little wonton-wrapped pork balls). It all looks so good, so fresh.

    There was not one disappointing meal Scott. Great flavours and amazing variety as you commented. It’s a good thing that travel also involves lots of walking around !
