This time, I found another famous hole-in-the-wall authentic Shanghainese restaurant, Lan Xin 兰心餐厅. Apparently, it’s a favourite of Faye Wong, the uber famous Chinese songstress. It’s located down the road from Hai Jin Zi 海金滋….Jinxian Lu is becoming a hipster/foodie street in Shanghai!
It’s pretty interesting to see all the expensive European cars drive up to Lan Xin, roll down the windows, and request to be on the waiting list.
hongshao rou… this was so good we had to order another dish! The pork was so tender and the sauce was so flavourful. This version has green peppers, which gave the sauce a bit of a sweet peppery kick.
The restaurant only gets a so-so on my list… even though the food tasted really good and was flavourful, some dishes were served cold 😦
FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
