Shanghai in French Concession

Jesse specialises in packing lots of people into tight spaces, so if you tend to gesture wildly when you talk, watch out with those chopsticks. This is Shanghainese home cooking at its best: crab dumplings, jujubes (red dates) stuffed with glutinous rice, Grandma’s braised pork and plenty of fish, drunken shrimp and eel.
