Shanghai: Food

First things first, of course, it’s the food. 🙂 

Food culture is quite a big thing in China, on our first meal, we were taken to a fancy restaurant, in a private room setting with Kuang (our friend from Shanghai who lives in NZ)’s family and his extended family.

We didn’t know what to expect.

As we we entered the room, they clapped to welcome us. During the dinner, each ‘elder’ or ‘parents’ would give a toast, to the guest of honor. In this case, Kuang, Angela(his partner), Sam(my partner) and I. It was quite an interesting experience.

PS. They ordered quite a few dishes.. including Deep friend Snake!!!! It tasted like KFC but let fatty.

Niu Rou Mien, Beef Pull Noodles

Cee Pah Mien, Chicken Chop Pull Noodles

Xiao Long Bao, Dumplings

Chicken Sandwich



Dumpling Chefs

Milk in a bag

Fun facts: The head of the table, is the of furthest away form the door.


Deep Fried Prawn

Peking Duck

Steak with Mushroom

Pickled vegetables


Yam Rice


I’m glad we experience China the way we did, with our friend Kuang, their family were so kind and generous and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience… (More on this on a later post)
