Walking around Shanghai on a Sunday afternoon, alone and hungry, most of the restaurants have closed for the afternoon break. The eatery at Xiao Shao Xing was still opened and offered a very reasonable chow break.
I have been there many years ago (1996), the first time I went to Shanghai. The eatery was on the ground floor. The restaurant was not opened as well, we came right after we closed shop at CeBIT Shanghai, and it was very late night supper. Since then I have been stationed in the city, went there (and the restaurant above), but I still love the ground floor eatery.
The food has remained affordable despite that everything in Shanghai has become so much more expensive. The chicken blood jelly soup was RMB 8, The scallion oil noodles RMB 7, the chopped half chicken RMB 45. And they kept the standards all these time, because it remains state owned.
Forget about service, you are there for the food.
