Shanghai cuisine is not as rich as other Northern Chinese cuisine, but they are so yummy. This is a great place to be on a Friday evening. This fun place has a modern touch to it – unusual for Shanghai cuisine, plus it’s full of TV screens for Karaoke lovers as well.
A unique way to wrap their dumplings – open top with split fillings. The split in the middle makes the whole dumpling different from the others. The pastry in the middle helps the filling to spread evenly.
|Pan fried pork buns|
This is the best pan fried pork buns I’ve ever had. The bread is so soft yet the bottom is fried so it’s crispy. The best of all is the clear soup that filled up the buns – they squirt out on every bite.
|Stir fried rice cake with preserved vegetables and shredded pork|
The snowy white rice cake is nice and chewy with my personal favourite – preserved vegetables. It’ll also go well with mushroom if pork is not your thing…
|Steam chicken with special sauce|
While the chicken might be plain, the sauce is the secret gem for this dish.

I have only recently discovered this type of rice cake – had it fried then cooked with eggs in an omelette at a Northern Vietnamese place recently. It came with sweet soy sauce. YUM!!
Never seen anything like those panfried pork buns – will have to seek them out next time I am at a Sichuan place.
Oh. I haven't had them in Vietnamese style before. Will need to try it out!
The pork bun is chef's special. You'll see them coming out of the kitchen every 5 minutes. Make sure you are at a Shanghai restaurant though 🙂
The Koreans use it abit too in their soup and stir fry.. I love it, Lauren!
