    • I hate queuing. I still haven’t been to RAC, Stack or that coconut bowl smoothie place. I once waited half an hour for one of those toasted marshmallow-topped hot chocolates (from Chocoholic in Old Xuhui), and it was disappointing. This leads to one of the many reasons why I love the Diner in Plaza 66 – it’s always empty.

      It doesn’t deserve to be, but – thankfully – it is. I’ve never seen more than two other tables occupied when I’ve been. Diner’s middle-child is up on the gloriously bright top floor, fitted out with exactly the kinds of booths and chrome you’d expect.

      The food is ace, unsurprisingly. The pancakes are a ridiculous, bombastic spectacle. The Eggs Benedict are served on cheesy cornbread – an anarchic and delicious upgrade. Pastrami hash is just as good as it sounds; fries are crispily, saltily perfect. And the pumpkin salad. I know it sounds like an unlikely hero, but it’s topped with a godly layer of puffed, deep-fried crispy chillies and salty peanuts. I couldn’t stop eating.

      Shakes are great. Food’s great. Service is great. There’s a catch-22 fear in promoting this place (the queues will lengthen if it gets more popular, but it’ll inevitably close if it doesn’t), but I’d rather it lost its exclusivity than vanished altogether. Mains mostly range from 50-150rmb; some are a little pricier than the Shanghai average, but it’s more than worth it.

      Diner’s Plaza 66 branch is the perfect pick for an amazing brunch without the crowds. Everything looks and tastes amazing; they’ve hit just the right balance between familiar dishes and fun twists. Please go and buy some pancakes so it stays open forever.
