Eating in Shanghai

John and I went to Shanghai for a couple of days in April 2015.

Shanghai

We did a little sightseeing but we mostly went there to eat.

You know how much I adore Peking Duck, and Xindalu China Kitchen did not disappoint.

Shanghai

It is located on the Lobby Level at Hyatt On The Bund.

We snacked on crispy eel while waiting for our duck to arrive.

Shanghai

Crispy eel is now one of my favorite snacks.

The Peking Duck arrived and was carved table side.

First the crispy skin:

Then the juicy duck meat:

And finally the skin and meat combination.

The Duck was served with thin pancakes, scallions, hoison sauce, melted garlic butter, and sugar.

I highly recommend Xindalu China Kitchen for Peking Duck in Shanghai. Be sure to order the duck when you make your reservation.

Again we ordered several dishes to share.

Our favorites were the the deep-fried duck leg:

The skin was perfectly crispy and the meat was tender and juicy.

Boneless pork strips with diced red onion and scallions:

And Hongshao rou:

A classic pork belly dish with ginger, garlic, chilli peppers, sugar, light and dark soy, and rice wine.

Jian Guo 328 is Shanghainese comfort food at its best!
