Shanghai Home 花样年华 @ Shanghai (2020)

An updated visit to Shanghai Home in Cloud Nine Mall, this time I brought along a friend to share my lunch.

上海人家 literally translates to Shanghainese home. The taste of each dish varies slightly from location to location based on the chef but the “midao” (Shanghainese for taste) is there. You can get authentic Shanghainese food without sacrificing taste, cleanliness and service, and at a reasonable price.

We just had to have steamed hairy crab because it was in season. These were main 450g variety from Taihu Lake, value for money.

The shrimp was fried correctly, not oily but it was a bit too salty. We finished the dish nevertheless.

The previous few visits, we found the food a bit too sweet and asked for them to cut the sugar. And then this dish was just monotonously salty.

We were quite surprised by the size of this fried rice and were afraid we might not be able to finish it. But it was DELICIOUS! And we finished every grain of rice.

I am surprised I never wrote anything about Shanghai Restaurant 上海人家. It was one of the first restaurants I was acquainted with the first time I went to Shanghai in 1996.

And now it has become a chain restaurants, the food has become quite standard. The service, however, has improved tremendously.
