3 Nights in Shanghai

GordonS | Mar 5, 2009 02:02 AM

Following on from my posts about Hong Kong and Beijing, I'll also be in Shanghai for 3 nights in June. And I would like yet more advice :o)

Fu 1088 is already decided for one night (5 year wedding anniversary, so something a bit different and special).

Another night I'm thinking YuanYuan (for Hong Shao Rou). I can do a pretty good soy braised pork myself, and it's a firm favourite of mine, so am looking forward to trying something authentic.

The last night I'm thinking Guyi for Hunan food. I want to sample as many cuisines as possible while in China and don't have anything Hunan planned for any of the other cities I will visit (Hong Kong, Beijing, Xian).

For lunch I'm thinking Shanghai Uncle. Another day I'm thinking dumplings. I _love_ dumplings, but have never tried xiao long bao or shen jian bao so am looking forward to sampling some from Jia Jia Tang Bao and Yang's Fry Dumplings respectively :D

I'm also after a breakfast option or two near the Radisson Hotel Shanghai New World hotel (Nanjing Road). Ideally will be within a short walk, quite cheap, and serve up something fast and tasty.

I don't think I mentioned in any of my previous posts that I plan to post reports of all restaurants I try upon my return (end of June). I find Chowhound a great resource, so hopefully I can help others too :)
