Typical shanghai food & German Restaurant


Hi there~ It has been four days since I arrived Shanghai. Other than trying to deal with jet lag, shopping, meeting friends, I’ve been eating too πŸ˜€

Let me present one of my favorite typical shanghai food to you: η”Ÿη…ŽεŒ… Crispy Pan Fried Buns

Much like a soup dumpling, pork, pork tallow, and pork fat are wrapped in a thin dough and sealed shut with a twist. Unlike a soup dumpling, these babies are lined up in a huge cast iron pan, covered, and fried with the seal side down.

    It’s to funny – German culture in foreign countries ALWAYS is Bavarian (= southern German) culture. The rest of Germany is pretty much not like that at all, in fact the Bavarians are very special and separate with their ways (dialect, beer garden culture, food, politics, catholicism). Joking, my mom sometimes says “kingdom of Bavaria”, meaning the Bavarian would separate from Germany and make up an own country if they could. Well, they won’t, but they’re always special.

    Being from northern Germany, I’ve grownup with quite a different background. Food-wise, for example, you won’t get pork feet with sauerkraut where I come from, but rather some of the following: vegetable stews with pearl barley, stew from beans, pears, and bacon, pea or potato stew with sausages, mashed kale topped with sugar (!) and rosemary-roasted potatoes and a hearty sausage, fish fish fish – pan-fried trout with almond slices, plaice with bacon, pickled herring or herring salad with apples and onions in sour cream – eggs sunny side up on sourdough rye bread, shrimp omelette, and red berry compote with vanilla sauce for dessert, or vanilla ice with hot raspberries.

  8. YUM, fried pig feet! What more could you ask for?!
    Actually, did you know that Paulaner beer (advertised on the placemats) is Nick and my favorite beer?!?! I would love to get it from an authentic German restaurant!! Yum, it’s so amazing.

    Glad you are having a nice time, Coco. It’s always fun to see old friends, especially when you feel as though you never were apart.
