This time, we went to Jesse’s for dinner all 3 nights we were in Shanghai! But what made this time extra special was that I persuaded my BFF to make a 10 hour stop in Shanghai before taking the connecting flight to Zhengzhou… Why? so we could dine at my favourite restaurant together!
A compilation of what we ate all 3 nights:
jelly fish head in vinegar..
ma lan tou….
sauteed river shimp..
braised pork with squid …
braised amaranth with ginger..
braised fish head with scallions…
dates stuffed with glutinous rice…
glutinous rice dumplings in sweet rice wine.. The only time I tried this was the last night of my last visit.. and I only ordered 1 small bowl. I’ve been dreaming of this for the past year.. so this time, I ordered the XXXXL version with 10+ bowls!
the new items we tried this time:
pan-fried crab… loved the presentation.. so colourful!
sauteed crab meat and roe with river shimp…. I don’t like this combo because the crab roe overpowers the sweetness of the shrimp..
Ji Shi fried rice.. perfect texture and flavour! but slightly oily…
fish (carp) soup… this was so creamy, sweet and flavourful! I like this more than their chicken soup. My VVIP foodie uncle said that he calls a day early to request this soup to be made with other seafood… I need to try that combo next time!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
