KevinTextbook on Liquid Laundry on Jul 28th
Liquid Laundry is so cool that it made me feel inadequate. This is a place for edgy people with name cards that say "chief disrupter" or "lead innovation designer", people who listen to bands like with names like "retro nuclear poney", people with beards and ironic tattoos. I'm not part of this crowd but Liquid Laundry allowed me to briefly feel like I did. Liquid Laundry manages to walk the fine line between.. ... [Read on]

Great Indian Food

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. The service and food quality are excellent. My wife and I decided to try something new, and after reading a little, decided on Indian. Vedas was the most conveniently located and quality Indian place, so we headed out. It is located on the 3rd floor, in a building with lots of other restaurants, but does not have great signage from the street. I knew it was there because I was going there, but wouldn't have if I was just walking by. The staff provide excellent service. Our waiter was Indian, from Punjab region, and w..

Nice surprise in Xintiandi

We (youn couple) have chosen Estado Puro because we saw the ad on the site. As there are no reviews yet and really not much information, I decided to write a first review. When we arrived the restaurant was packed inside but they found a table for us. Unfortunately the table was right below an aircon but after telling the waiter they put it down a little. The waiters themselfs were very enthusiastic and could recommend dishes for you. I was also quite impressed by their cocktail card - especially the about 15 different Gin choices for a Gin&Tonic. Although they have a..

Bullitt on Gaia 2

Slightly above average

Went to this place with my wife on a weekday dinner. Overall it is fairly representative of the typical Shanghai dining experience; especially when it came to the service. Overpriced and underwhelming. Having said that, the food quality was above average. We had a Piedmont style beef tartar that was beautiful, and the appetizer that was described as "bacon wrapped lamb filet" was also good (but there was no bacon, and it was more like a deep-fried lamb meatball). The pizza we had was described as crispy thin crust, but in the event it was chewy. The past..

Great value

Checked out Dixie last night. It is a little hole-in-the-wall type place. Only seating for maybe 8 in total? You can however get take away as well. Based on the price we thought the portions would be pretty small. A Pull Pork Sandwich sets you back about 35 Kuai from memory - a coke is 8 kuai. The Taco I think came in at about 25-30 Kuai. But don't let the price point fool you - it is a decent sized meal. In the end it meant we didn't make much of an impact on the side orders of Kimchi fries (which were actually really nice) and sweet potato fries we also ordered. If..

A wonderful evening ruined by awful service

I was there on Wednesday night with a large group of friends. Everything was going well, warm weather, nice drinks, nice lighting and decor, nice house music. I was spending alot of money, but I was feeling good, enjoying myself and didn't care. By about 11pm I had spent about 500rmb on shisha, cocktails a very delicious ale and was feeling thirsty again. I politely asked the waiter for a glass of water, my second one of the evening, and was told "sorry, we don't serve free water." I felt shocked. I explained I'd been there all night, was with a large group of about 8 peopl..

Yep - your'e still in China.

Oh my dear reader, I bemoan that I must land upon your eyes with this such news. Seldom do I feel the urge to bring my feelings to 聪上 when draped in negativity, though today that urge has overtaken my spirit. Shall we begin? Upon arrival at 20:00 on Friday July 11 at the Jing'an Shangri-La hotel, I was happily directed to the appropriate floor by elevator by a cheerful associate. Upon arrival I noticed my comrade zoning upon a table in the intensely bright dining room, preparing to sit in hospital cafeteria grade seating. Wedged between two other parties, we c..

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.
