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.

Some kind of warm drink with purple beans in it, really delicious.
Soup dumplings 小笼包 for breakfast, yes please.
Two 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.
Twenty 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.

Western food craving: chocolate chip cookie and Bakewell pastry.
Best Thai food I’ve ever had: mild spicy curry with roasted duck meat and pineapple, served with an infinite amount of prawn crackers and jasmine rice. And to top it off..
Baked pastries filled with banana and covered in syrup and served with ice cream.
The 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.
