Did you know SmartShanghai has a roving team of more than a dozen paid reviewers who are out there in the city, picking over what restaurants have to offer and writing a combined 50+ reviews per month
? They're our SmartReviewers, tearing our city's dining scene apart and then putting it back together again. This month alone they visited everywhere from Montreal smoked meat shop Tock’s
, where they found the food “anticlimactic” and “dessicated”
to Shake Shack
(“overhyped” and “soggy-bottomed”
) and then Pure & Whole
which was “purely bland and wholly uninspiring
”. It wasn’t all negative! In fact, they liked way more places than they panned this month. What else have they been saying?
