Woaizhongguo on Pelham's on Jan 17th
I have no problems paying top dollar for great food, but in Shanghai, there are so many places where you can pay what many local families might spend on food in an entire year and still end up with a mediocre meal. It's for that reason I don't do much fine dining in this city and save the big bucks for when I am back home in London or travelling elsewhere. But now and again, the occasion calls for something a bit special and because the stakes ar.. ... [Read on]

Mind blowing food!

I went to tomatito two nights ago for the first time and was mind blown by the food. Fresh ingredients cooked in a very imaginative way yet simple enough to make you feel comfortable. Every bite was a pleasant surprise! The portions were just right for the price which i found relatively cheap for the quality of the food. However, the service was unfortunately not adequate. The waiters kept messing up our order and bringing us the wrong food and it took around 15' minutes and a lot of effort to pay the bill. I initailly tried to pay by card, but there was some problem with..

Is that it?

After hearing about Le Bec, I was expecting that this restaurant would be something really special. It is not bad, but it's nothing really wonderful. The restaurant looks very small. I was surprised that that's all there is. It looks like a much bigger building. The decorating is fine but nothing special again. I think, Le Bec, that you are trying to be humorous with the sign about eating the lobster at the lobster tank. The waiters offered us sparkling or still water several times when we were first seated. Apart from that, the service was quite good. Well done, Le Bec...

How is this place in business?

RMB280 for a pizza!? Yeah it's a big pizza, but it wasn't good, and it certainly wasn't worth the investment. Tinned chicken and oily meats? However 168 for a bottle of wine in this city isn't bad. Interior was average at best, the entire experience seems to rest on the set of photocopied celebrity photos that adorned the stair well. Avoid.

Modern, Fresh, Kitsch Korean next to Yongkang Lu

I first discovered this place over the summer when it was their first week open. The owners are a young Korean couple who speak fluent Chinese (having spent their high school years in Shanghai). It's a great, cute concept. They do simple Korean sets like Beef or Veggie Bibimbop, Beef Bulgolgi Rice that come with a seaweed soup, and 3 mini servings of kimchi and Korean veggies. The food is all very fresh and modern. Presented on a tray in cute containers. My only complaint is that all their containers and way to serve is not very environmentally friendly - but it's definitel..

Finally some affordable and delicious Ravioli in Shanghai!

This is exactly what I wanted to have in Shanghai: A European equivalent to the Xiao Long Bao! I went to a few italian restaurants in Shanghai but was always shocked at the prices of their ravioli. 130 RMB for 4 small ravioli dipped in cream? I mean come on!!! Fortunately Pasta Lab got it right! I went 2 times and to be honest I didn't really like the decor the first time, it was white and pretty cold. I think they redid everything a few months ago and it now looks so much more cozy. Anyway, about the important part: the food. My all time favorite is the salmon ravioli ..

Great Produce, High Value, Smoker in Restaurant

Dinner (full hotpot set, 98RMB) at the kitchen was superb. I was impressed by the quality of the ingredients and the calm appearance of the interior. Great tasting yet, as another reviewer stated, it doesn't leave you feeling heavy afterwards. Near the end of my stay at 9:30PM, however, the atmosphere was ruined by a guest who waltzed in, and, in the middle of the dining area, smoked a cigarette and exhaled tobacco smoke in the middle of the dining area hallway. He had completely ignored the "no-smoking" sign just beside the washrooms. Then, in the men's wa..

Henkes

Henkes is Aussie chef Craig Willis's homage to the other side of his family; it's his mother's maiden name. By his own account, he's extracted the DNA of his first namesake restaurant Mr. Willis and expanded upon it with a trattoria/cafe/wine bar concept. Expect Willis's distinctive brand of Oz-Med flavors in sharable portions with a heavy Italian influence. The place also has a cafe that serves pastries, fresh-squeezed juices, and sandwiches.
