Jia Jia Tang Bao in Shanghai

Shanghai is famous for tang baos which are soup filled dumplings.  This place we went to is called jia jia tang bao, although more like xiao long bao than tang bao, was really good. The dumplings are really cheap and they have all kinds: chicken, pork, shrimp, crab, etc.  The soup is so clear and flavorful.  The food is prepared right when you order it so it's hot and fresh.

Shanghai Highlights

I spent the last couple weeks working in Shanghai and had some good eats.  I'm just posting it all at once now because China blocked blogger.

Vegetarian Lifestyle.  This is one of my favorite meals.  My friend who can't live without meat didn't even notice that there was none.  We had good food and left stuffed.

People 7.  This place was fun.  Everything was a puzzle to be solved: a code to get into the restaurant, figuring out how to go to the restroom, and a table full of puzzles as you wait for the food.

Fancy brunch in Osteria.

Desserts from whisk.  Chocolate addict???  This is the place to go!
