My wife is working with someone who is here from Shanghai for 6 months. She's missing food from home so we've arranged to take her and and bunch of other co-workers to Chinatown (Dundas/Spadina area).
My question to you fellow Chowhounders is where is a good spot to take her so that she'll get a taste of home? I don't think it necessarily has to be Shanghaiese food per se, but somewhere where Caucasions (most of the group) and Chinese (her and I) can both be happy?
Scanning through earlier posts mentions Asian Legend for some Shanghai-style food, but I'm wondering if it's maybe too chain-like now? I went there once, and it wasn't bad, but I think she wants somewhere where it's predominately Chinese. How about E-Pan?
If anyone can offer some suggestions, that would be fantastic. We're taking her this coming Friday (April 20/2007).
Thanks in advance!
