Although the city's oily, sugary and soy sauce-doused cuisine can't be heralded as the best eating on the mainland, we love our food here in Shanghai. And, in a city that offers so many culinary options, from roadside stalls to Michelin-starred restaurants, we wanted to celebrate that. Food is always the quickest way to get acquainted with a culture, but the food here takes on its very own distinct flavor that can’t be found anywhere else. Small group - makes it more personalized . generous portion - make sure you are full. To make sure you have the best eating experience, we select the best restaurants that I go myself often and DO NOT accept any commissions or kickbacks.
