Taoji HK Restaurant, Shanghai

We got into Shanghai late last night and the hotel restaurant had just closed. So wit the streets looking for food, but most of the local mom & pop shops I know in the area had also already shut their doors. Not wanting to wander too far, we ended up at a place called Taoji HK Restaurant, right across the street from the Andaz Hotel in Xintiandi, and had a tasty, affordable, late night meal in this Hong Kong-style diner. Here’s a look…

Some decent char siu roast pork; nothing to write home about, but acceptable at almost midnight…

Deep-fried chicken cartilage with fresh & dried chile peppers…

My favorite dish, snap peas fried with garlic, lap cheong sausage and smoked bacon…

Simple wonton noodles…

With a big bottle of Tsingtao “Draft” to help with the jetlag…

All this for about $20 US! Simple and savory, a great way to start our trip.
