Shanghai Restaurant Guide

Shanghai cuisine, which encompasses the coastal areas of eastern China, is said to require the most skill in the creation of superb Asian cuisine. Its goal is to preserve the basic flavor of each ingredient in order to achieve overall balance and freshness. River fish, farm animals, birds, and vegetables are prominently featured. Braising and stewing are more common than stir-frying and red sauces (made from soy sauce, sugar, and oil) are popular. Shanghai Hangzhou, Yangzhou, and Suzhou -style cooking are all variations on the same type of theme.

Popular Restaurants in Shanghai:
 
Shintori is wide-open and warehouse-like, with very high, dramatic ceilings. Light-colored raw cement walls, glass and steel, along with the Japanese-minimalistic décor, give Shintori a sleek, modern, almost "big city-trendy" - yet serious - atmosphere. The grilled cod, oxtail soup and "rock and roll" salad consistently get rave reviews. Signature dishes are the assorted sashimi and the barbecue beef roll. You won't be disappointed.
