The Chinese alternative to Thanksgiving. Carving turkeys stuffed with moist bread is for suckers. The Chinese have it all figured out.

Sort of hard to find behind the giant malls and then the hedges separating the patio from the street, but once you're in it's worth it. The first thing that I look for in a restaurant that's not Chinese or fast food, is lighting. Good lighting here -- maybe a bit too low for a business dinner, but perfect for hiding from a date and for ordering everything in order to take food photos under the low hanging spotlight lamps. Seating is comfortable, .. ... [Read on]

papierjaune on T for Thai

Simply excellent!

I had been to Cuivre, the restaurant below and run by the same partners, so I decided to try T for Thai with my girlfriend. The place is quite big but didn't have the reverb so often found in Shanghai because of poor soundproofing and tables are sufficiently separated from one another for privacy. The menus are on Ipads, something I abhor to begin with, but also because they simply didn't go along with the decor or the fact that it is a thai restaurant. Yuan lounge has Ipads too but it's a dimly lit cocktail bar and the presentation, in my opinion, is more attractive as wel..

Taste of good ol Mehico

A bunch of us went to Pistolera on Friday night around 8pm. The location is pretty good, bang on Hengshan lu so cant be missed if you're looking for it. The staff is quick at the door and getting a place was easy for the 4 of us. The waitstaff smiles a lot which is much needed in Shanghai. Ordered a couple of pitchers of margaritas and we settled in for a good time. Complimentary nachos were quick to appear as were the drinks (albeit in smallish pitchers). We ordered a big plate of nachos with all the goods, the shrimp jalapenos (hot!!) and my friends went for th..

No boxing cats but good beer

Went to the boxing cat place last Sunday. Huge disappointment! Despite the implicit promise carried in its name, the Boxing Cat doesn't feature a single boxing cat! Not even regular cats (or boxing for that matter)! Needless to say I was feeling severely let down. Their beer is however excellent. Makes up for the lack of fighting felines.

Good Food/Bad Service From The Demon Chef

Wanted to try something new in town and had heard a bit about Michelin-starred Alvin Leung's new restaurant in Mengzi Lu so thought I'd give it a shot. Called to make a reservation and the initial exchange with the person on the phone went like this: Me: "Hello, ni hao, can I make a reservation for two this evening?" Remedy 365: "Laowai ! Just moment....(inaudible conversation)...laowai...laowai...(more inaudible conversation)...laowai...laowai..........Hello can I help you?" Me: "我可以说中文!你真的不礼貌!" Remedy 365: &qu..

Best Korean Food in Shanghai

My and my husband went there for dinner. There two set lunch. It's quite affordable for the Bund area restaurants. We actually didn't really expect that it would be so good. Having Korean backgrounds and having lived in Korea for a while I was impressed. The interior design is very minimalist but very classy. The presentation is just beautiful. The chief of the restaurant gave us a signature salad for free as a warm welcome. In total we had around 7 dishes and we were reasonably fool. I don't mean like "full when you can't move" but "full hen you are able to ..

OK food and Over-Priced Wine

Had a weekday dinner with a friend of mine. Nice and quiet atmosphere that venue has. You have to order everything on the big touch screen nearby the enterence which I found a bit weird considering niceness of the restaurant as I was expecting to see the menu on my table but it was interesting. Food creativity was quite poor on the other hand the ingredients that they use i found them fresh and nicely cooked. Service was nice and helpful although they were lack some basic skills such as how to serve wine. Place provided us a private feeling by not being interrupted by ..

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.
