I'm in Shanghai for 3 weeks studying Mandarin. I have been trying out a few restaurants and posted some photos of food and other sights on my blog at the link below. Since I'm eating alone I haven't been able to eat as many different dishes as I would like but most of what I have had has been great. My worst meal was last night at M on the Bund. My big splurge turned out to be a big disappointment. Everything was oversalted and bland. I can also report that the chain Bi Feng Tang is also bad. I had some inedible xiaolongbaozi there. But maybe that is already known. I have found some little places near my school that I like - a Sichuan place on Anfu Lu is my favorite. If anyone has some other ideas for me I'd appreciate it. I have found that I do need a place with an English menu. Thanks in advance.
