Tibet Tour from Shanghai - Top 10 Shanghai Delicious Food

Small steamed bun

If you ask what the favorable food of Shanghai people is, you should get the answer, small steamed bun, also called Xiaolongbao. It is said that you will never forget it if you tasted once, and seems you can't live without. The dumpling is hiding its soup within delicately pinched wrapper, which tourists could be probably burned on the mouths and tongues. You'd better puncture the dumpling wrapper to let out the steam, and then slurp the soup slowly.

Di Shui Dong ribs

The ribs is sweetly braised in soy sauce, which is easily to be inhaled in a matter of seconds. Sounds crazy?

Braised eggplant

Even renowned for many famous cuisine, the braised version of this hearty vegetable is by far the most savory in Shanghai. It is stewed by shaoxing wine, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger, sugar, chilies and sometimes even pork. But veggies will not feel guilty because you still eat the vegetable.

Grilled oysters

Do you know Shanghai is also well known as a sea food foodie heaven? The oysters could be with black bean sauce, chili oil and garlic, and wannabe French oysters in 'cheese' sauce. You will find your own favorable flavor.

Chicken of the fields (aka frog)

Well, I love it but i am very sorry if it is not suit for you. The meat is superior to chicken in every way.

The M Pavlova

the famous M Pavlova is a kind of meringue torte heaped with tropical fruit and glazed with tangy passion fruit sauce.

Stinky tofu

Well, it is really the smelliest food in the city. It is fermented and plenty offensive to the nose, a challenge for you. Give it a try and you may fall in love with it. Or you need to stay far away from it.

Tong Zi chicken

Well, it is a little embarrassment that the name literally means the chicken has no sexual experience. The meat tastes tender and it sometimes made into a medical soup.

Hanging roasted duck

We would like to eat it with noodles, rice. We would also like to try it right out of its carryout box.

Raw, drunken crab

Drunken crab, made with spotted sea crabs. The complex flavor of Shaoxing wine can be bit of an acquired taste. Someone says it tastes like the feeling of a nudist on a subway. What do you think of it?
