ON56


We had a nice lunch at ON56 at Grand Hyatt. Too bad we could not take advantage of the nice views with the bad air quality. But the lunch was nicely done.

L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon


Needing to update my book, I got a lunch at Robuchon in Bund 18. The food and service were great. I quite liked the bread selection, tartare and the dessert.

Sun Chateau


Although it was another bad air quality day, we went to Sun Chateau for a good lunch set. The meal is decent value. Just wish the views could have been better.

T8


On a rainy day, we made the trek across town to Xintiandi for T8. The lamb shank and tenderloin brightened the day.

Marina by DN


Unfortunately the air quality was not good today. I think you would normally have good views of the Bund. Marina by DN offers a nice lunch set for this week.

Ryemate


I tried the salmon quiche at Ryemate. It is pretty decent. I will go back to the lemongrass orange ice tea for next time.

Blue Frog


Another Monday, another one for one burger. I got the double patty burger. Burger was decent but the skimpy sweet potato fries was a bit disappointing.

Xibei Youmian Cun


After a team activity of laser tag, we went to Xibei Youmian Cun for a dinner. This place is famous for the oat noodles and lamb. I thought the lamb was good. The tag on the fish was amusing.

Hard Rock Cafe


Hard Rock is something of a known quantity and usually a safe bet. The staff was very friendly and helpful to handle some minor issues.

Ryemate


A Ryemate opened recently near my apartment. I managed to give it a try today. The iced orange lemongrass tea was very nice. I also liked the bacon mushroom quiche.

Bellini


We dropped by on a quiet hour. It picks up a bit later in the night. Seems like it should be a nice place.

Jade Garden


Jade Garden is a regular option for me. My favorite item is the grainy beef.

Tang Palace Seafood Restaurant


Tang Palace Seafood Restaurant is one of the better options in this area of Shanghai. The soup of the day is usually a good bet.

Thai Inn


Had to get away from the convention crowd. We managed to get in for Thai Inn at Himalayas Mall before the convention crowd got there.

Hakkasan


It is always nice to hit the weekend dim sum at Hakkasan with three people. We can get a nice spread of dim sum options to share.
