When I got this assignment, I was a little annoyed. RMB80 for a wheat beer at a notoriously touristy establishment that’s known for serving overpriced mediocre German food? Why, SmSh, why? Think of the microbreweries!
I take it all back. I had the best time ever. The hostess sat me upstairs and away from the band so I could, “Hear my friend.” The Tuesday night playlist of all those songs you don’t know what they are but know all the words anyway.
Kind of all in the same song.
In a strange nostalgic way, it reminded me of Shanghai the way I imagine the Shanghai of 2007. An international chain, but just slightly off from the German tradition it’s supposed to be emulating. Like, if you’re a fresh face to Shanghai, I wouldn’t recommend it. If you’re the kind of person who likes collecting Hard Rock t-shirts and American flag bikinis, but you also want some German flavor? Yes. You too belong here.
Pretzels were A+. The pate that came with it was slightly weirder.
Price for two people in the twilight zone: RMB 570
