Savour exquisite Shanghainese cuisine in a tastefully decorated setting that mirrors the breathtaking oriental city.
WHAT TO ORDER
To start, the drunken chicken in Chinese rice wine is strongly recommended. The aroma and taste of the rice wine is infused evenly within the fine layers of the meat and skin and is present in every bite, without being overwhelming.
The steamed Shanghainese meat dumplings are also favourites. The finely minced meat stuffing in a flavourful broth is elegantly wrapped with a delicately kneaded skin. Accompanied with finely chopped ginger and fine black vinegar, every bite is just as delicious as the last.
To start the main course, a good option is the pan-fried cod with a touch of brandy. The cod is pan-fried, its skin is crisped to perfection, and each bite is infused with the smooth and fragrant brandy broth. The Thai asparagus with black garlic is another must-try with the thinly sliced asparagus perfectly sautéed for a crisp texture.
To end the meal, the signature Shanghai layer cake with custard and salted egg does not disappoint. The salted egg custard is finely sandwiched between delicate layers of sponge cake and with every bite you taste the impeccable balance of sponge cake, and salty and sweet goodness.
