Noodles in Shanghai Old City

Right next to KFC north of the Yùyuán Gardens, this upstairs place doesn’t look particularly appealing but it serves typical Old Town fare and it’s a well-known family name in Shànghǎi. They serve up excellent, filling bowls of Sūzhōu noodles. Choose between tāng (soupy) and gān (dry) noodles; in either case, the flavouring comes on a side plate.

Try the mixed noodles with shredded beef (¥20) or the spicy meat noodles in red oil (红油腊肉面; hóngyóu làròu miàn; ¥13). Ask for the English picture menu.
