Jian Guo 328

Shanghai in French Concession

Frequently crammed, this boisterous narrow two-floor MSG-free spot tucked away on Jianguo Rd does a roaring trade on the back of excellent well-priced Shanghainese cuisine. You can’t go wrong with the menu; highlights include the deep-fried duck legs, aubergine casserole, scallion-oil noodles and yellow croaker fish spring rolls. Reserve.
