For those of you not "in the know", SmartDeals is a lusty marriage between SmartShanghai and SmartTicket. On SmSh we have a wealth of deals uploaded each week, and some have asked for the sheer convenience-factor option of being able to reserve places online prior to going. Not everyone wants to wait 40 minutes for a table at Fat Cow on Mondays. Thus, SmartTicket to the rescue, amigos. We're creating a curated service for deals each day of the week, plus one weekly deal that can be redeemed anytime this week, or for future dates. So, whenever you see the SmartDeals logo, open this wire UP to see what new deals we're highlighting.
Shook! caught wind of the infamous SmartDeals that we've been doing and decided to invite us down to check-out their "VIP Executive" degustation menu prior to letting it go live (how kind). There is a limited run of these tickets, only 30 available. Ticket prices are discounted by 40% (39% for honesty's sake). The original price is steep at 1,725rmb, for 8 courses (yes, there is lobster and wagyu beef involved) plus two glasses of sparkling wine, but, goodnight nurse, they are shaving 675rmb and waiving the service charge. Ya'll just got paid, so celebrate your October accomplishments.
Here's the pitch and photos:
“Fanny Bay” – Canadian Oyster wasabi sea urchin butter, broiled
Pan-roasted Hokkaido Scallop, edamame puree, pickled shimeji mushrooms, ikura
Butter-poached Maine lobster, curried red lentils, pineapple chutney, coconut emulsion, coriander
Singer water sorbet (not dessert, just a palette cleanser!)
