In & Out Lijiang Restaurant, Shanghai

No burgers served at this In & Out. Here they specialize in cuisine from Lijiang in the Yunnan province of China. Spicy cuisine!

A colleague introduced me to this restaurant last week and I loved it so much I’ve already been back. Their food uses chile peppers and seasonings quite liberally, but all prepared with a deft hand that gives each dish heat in a way that tickles your tongue rather than burn your face off. Like their outstanding signature spicy chicken dish…

Or the grilled beef wraps stuffed with mint and topped with chiles and sesame…

This noodle dish is another specialty there…

Mixed at your table by servers in traditional Yunnan garb…

These regional rice noodles have a spaghetti-like look but a completely different consistency and taste…

And a simple dish of steamed greens that lets the flavor speak for itself…

I wish I could give you more insight into each dish here, but their menu was entirely in Chinese, although it does have pictures for pointing & ordering. I’ll be exploring In & Out’s offerings more extensively though, and will bring along some foodie friends who can hopefully provide better explanations for future posts.
