Shanghai - Looking for Good Place to Buy Traditional Wok

JD3 | Aug 28, 201108:12 AM

Hello -

I will be traveling to Shanghai for a week in September and am looking for a shop to purchase a traditional Wok.

Does anyone have any advice on where I should shop - either specific stores or market areas where they might sell these?

I do not speak Chinese and would likely be shopping on a Saturday.

FYI - the references to the "wok man" in Shanghai where Grace Young (cookbook author) found hers are no longer valid, the shop where those were manufactured is now a park after redevelopment (according to Google maps satellite view of the address).

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Many thanks,

John
