Eating tour of Shanghai in pictures

We left Shanghai with a lighter heart and heavier tummy, and this is why:

This beer cost 10 RMB. That's S$2. Basement of Times Square, Shanghai


You are not allowed to eat the menu


We didn't know that Ye Shanghai wasn't the same as Old Ye Shanghai, and we paid for it


French coffee in the French Concession


An inviting vegetarian cafe in the same district


Candied hawthorn fruit sold on the street, which we were later warned against, cos they're not hygienically prepared. Oops.


In case you didn't know how to drink Chocolate - at Whisk!


The best Peking Duck in Shanghai - Xindalu


Lillian's slogan borrowed from Carlsberg: Probably The Best Egg Tart In Shanghai


Franck's was a most delightful bistro on a most delightful street


Putting Naomi in a candy store is like putting Naomi in a candy store.


Best dumpling in the world. About to be eaten.


They mixed the sweet and savoury dumplings in the same bowl. Which was weird.


Best Taiwanese food in Shanghai is here, apparently


We were a little horrified at the lack of pedicure. Our Shanghainese relatives didn't share our concern.


Bound to be eaten - Shanghainese Hairy Crab


We found the cafe chain Wagas to be surprisingly good.


No, it wasn't a baby turkey. We asked.


Possibly the best meat dumplings in the world


At Hong Kong New World Plaza, they served freshly made beancurd (douhua) in a tub like this. And we emptied it like this.


These were the most delicious black sesame filled pumpkin dumplings we ever tasted


Naomi's late brother loved this Xinjiang kebab vendor's fare. So did we.


The skewered meats/vegetables were infused with the flavors that only some inedible fuel could create
