Travel: Shanghai June 2015- food feast

After three days of busy work in Beijing, we went to Shanghai for 5 days and my agenda was much less crowded. I met with friends and had good food! 🙂

this place is called 晶采轩. It was my first time eating there and definitely not the last. All the food is tasty, delicate and carefully decorated. I can’t ask for more.

egg filled with fois gras, baked duck and pork, tofu wrap filled with chinese spinach


assorted entree marinated in white wine, shrimp shanghai style


fried tail fish


hot stone ball of white fish and onion, beef stew with red sauce


my favorite dish: tofu soup with salted fish, dessert was baked fruit filled mini pies


after dinner, we went to karaoke, song for 4 hrs and had two bottles of whisky 🙂 What a fun night!


another cool restaurant we went is called 宴遇 (“affairs”). Look its wet cloth package… what comes to your mind?


he food was good but not spectacular. I specially like this silk tofu entree… very smooth and slightly sweet. green salad


seafood salad, a chicken next with spicy chicken and the eggs are actually made with mango


steamed egg with scallop and piggy buns

dessert: fruit


after two days of heavy food, we craved something light the next day. A vegetarian restaurant that I went few days ago. We sit in the root top garden… perfect spot for an evening meal

even meat lover Tony enjoyed the meal. And for me, I could eat there everyday!

Last meal during our stay in shanghai: the typical breakfast food. ried pork dumpling, steam buns and soup with tofu pocket, veggies and yam noodles

It was definitely a great trip, I had a productive mission, we had good food and most importantly Tony came back with me!!! 😀 Now, we’re officially starting a new life together.
