It is spring in Shanghai but the weather is like 80% windy, rainy, hazy and 20% summer. How should a spring season be in Shanghai? Definitely, not a beautiful photo view of the city.
First night’s cravings start with huge portion of Korean food. When has Korean food portion been small with all those appetiser dishes?

Unit 19, No.199, Thumb Plaza, Fang Dian Road, Pudong.
This Thai restaurant is very localised to Shanghainese taste. You will see what I mean. Find 1 thing that’s similar.
Crispy caesar salad (RMB78)
The vegetables are fresh which live up to its “crispy salad” with quail eggs, parmesan cheese slices, bacon strips, some olives and 2 slices of very crispy garlic bread. I loved the garlic bread for the crispiness and the garlic taste would not linger in my mouth. It’s topped with their special sauce which is nice.
|That man made this restaurant look scary :p|
Hunan dish restaurant. We decided on this restaurant because the dish that everyone is eating attracted us and it’s our turn to try!
Bi Feng Tang 避风塘

Tel: +86 021 22065228
A chinese restaurant chain store in Shanghai. The food are generally rather oily.
Ginger Chicken 沙姜三黄鸡 (RMB36)
It’s soya sauce chicken. A little oily and the chicken has very little meat. Not that I recommend.
Fermented beancurd lettuce 白灼腐乳唐生菜 (RMB23)
The vegetable is nice with the fermented beancurd but it becomes a little oily for the last few pieces of lettuce as there’s oil on the base of the bunch of vegetables. The fermented beancurd is only on the top. So if you like the fermented beancurd, it won’t be enough to share.
Dried Scallop with Roasted Pork Fried Rice 瑶柱叉烧炒饭 (RMB29)
The fried rice’s fragrant is nice. I couldn’t really taste the dried scallop as there were shredded but I tasted the char siew. Overall, not too bad.
Fried Beef Hor Fun 干炒牛肉河粉 (RMB29)
Is tasted nice but too oily. The beef texture is just alright. It would be better just with a little less oil.
Crispy prawn rice wrap 脆皮锦绣虾仁肠粉 (RMB21)
This must be eaten when it’s served, then the inner layer remains crispy. It’s like friend spring roll wrapped with rice wrap (chee cheong fun). It’s nice.
Food republic at Thumb Plaza
A taste of China’s food court. All food looks good but I could only have a stomach to feed this much.
Location: Basement of Carrefour at Thumb Plaza, Fang Dian Road.
Les Beautes Shabu Shabu 漂亮石头火锅
Assorted Fillet Beef Meat Set 精选肥牛套餐 (RMB33) + No.1 Assorted Mushroom Hot Pot Soup 一品菌菇锅 (RMB5) + Sour Plum Juice 酸梅汁 (RMB8)
It’s quite a good and full meal. The beef slices are good and delicious. The soup is clear but becomes thick and oily after you start dipping the beef slices but it’s expected. So, I ate the beef slices last. Soup is refillable. Sour plum juice is too sweet. Skip the drink if you can be satisfied with the soup.
Les Beautes Teppanyaki 牛比羊大
Fillet Mignon 非力牛排 + Teppanyaki Boneless Chicken 无骨鸡腿 + Japan Steamed Egg 日式蒸蛋 + Bean Sprout with Garlic 蒜香银芽 + Seasoned Vegetables 季节蔬菜 + Steamed Rice 白饭 + Soup 例汤 (all for RMB78)
Both beef fillet and chicken were tender cooked with black pepper with rather nice vegetables. I love the steamed egg with egg roe where the egg roe gave the steamed egg some flavour. A place that I don’t mind to be back for.
