We had a little adventure and went to Shanghai, China where we ate a lot! We ate at a restaurant called Zhang Sheng Ji inside the Super Brand Mall on the 6th floor! The food was Shanghai style and it was quite delicious! It was a restaurant that was one of our friends favourite, so she was really excited to take us there!
We didn’t eat a lot this evening as we just got off the plane and was quite tired. We did start with a soup of Bamboo Shoot and Pork Soup and it was really nice after a long day on a plane! The flavours were well developed and it was quite tasty!
One of my favourite dishes is the Squirrel Fish which is a deep fried fish deboned from head to tail (but in tacked) and fried with a pattern to look like a squirrel! It is often a sweet and tangy flavour so you’ll often find pineapple and tomato ketchup with the fish. This one had the sweet and tangy sauce, I don’t recall pineapples, but it was absolutely delicious!
We also had their Sheng Jian Bao which is a pork bun that is pan fried. These buns are steamed with a light and fluffy top and a delicious crispy golden pan fried bottom. These ones were stuffed with delicious pork, kind of like a pot-sticker filling! These were definitely made to perfection, tasty and juicy on the inside too!
Overall, this was a great place that was recommended! I did want to go back, but there were so many other new and exciting places to try, in and around the area (even in the mall!)
