Lonely Planet review
Meekly suggest an interest in seafood, nothing deep-fried, perhaps some greens and your server nods, grabs the menu and returns laden with Shanghai specialties: fragrant sautéed pea shoots with scallops, garlicky noodles and black-bean-glazed eggplant. Expect bossy service, a wait for a shared table and a strict cash-only policy – but also bright, fresh flavors at reasonable prices.
