Doggie Bag Culture in Shanghai?

cimui | Mar 29, 2009 02:29 AM

I'll be dining with at least one or two other people during most of my time in Shanghai, but anticipate a few solo meals. There are so many places I want to try that appear to only serve in family sized portions, and so many dishes I want to try at each! Would it be considered tacky to order a variety of dishes at a restaurant and have leftovers wrapped up to go? (I know many Europeans find this gauche, while Americans generally find this acceptable.)

I still have a few weeks to practice packing in some big meals, but I fear I am a bit of a lightweight. And even with practice, I don't think the size of my actual stomach will ever catch up with the size of my theoretical stomach. ;)
