Creative Shanghai-fusion restaurant inside the Blackstone Comprehensive Music Park. The food menu, printed on a vinyl record, is riddled with quotation marks, with things like Tofu "Bavarois" (walnut oil and Japanese soy sauce, 38rmb), Meatball "Lava" (traditional Cantonese sausage, minced pork, mozzarella, 88rmb) and an oyster "you dun zi", the classic Shanghai deep-fried brick of a radish cake (48rmb). Oh and there’s a 768rmb Shanghai Lobster Roll (Boston lobster, minced pork, mozzarella, broccoli) which you have to book in advance. Red and gold Art Deco interior.
We check out a historical building in Xuhui, now turned into a culture hub.
