Hidden at the end of an alleyway among a clutch of seedy girlie bars, Wo Jia is a humble eatery specializing in home-style Shanghai cuisine. One man in a phone booth-sized kitchen belts out an impressively diverse menu of Shanghai classics. The shaguo shizitou (braised lion's head meatballs), youbao xia (pan-fried river shrimps) and red-braised eel come highly recommended.
