I went to Shanghai with the plan the eat my way through the city. I think I did quite a decent job, however, I wouldn’t mind going back another time to get some more pan fried soup dumplings or the weird, purple bean drink.

PastriesTwo amazing pastries: the one on the left is savory, no idea what was in it. The one on the right is the best egg tart I’ve ever stuffed in my mouth, I extremely regret not getting more than one.

StandingInLine2Twenty meters away from the line for the crazy drink was this one: people waiting for their fried pork chop. When there’s a line like this all day, every day, you know it must be good.

BestFriedChickenThe best fried chicken in the world. I’ve had this one before in Taiwan, but now the shop has expanded to Shanghai, so I could have it again – lucky me. Last time I wasn’t able to handle the “very spicy”  and I would just order regular spicy, but I was sure that by now, two and a half years later, I was able to conquer the 辣辣的. Tears were streaming down my face while I was eating the chicken, not sure if this was because it tasted exactly the same as I remembered and I loved every bite of this humongous monster, or maybe because it was so spicy it felt like I was on fire. Anyway, it was the best way to end my food adventure in Shanghai.
