We eventually did get to Shanghai restaurants!
Lao Ji Shi was on my list of places to try but the first branch we went to was closed. Luckily, we were able to reserve a table in the swanky IAPM.
Glutinous rice stuffed in dates. Delicious!
Really good and cholesterol laden dish. Crab roe with buns! We wiped the bowl clean!
Ugly looking but tender beef brisket in pepper sauce.
Salted duck which is a popular way to cook meats in Shanghai
Braised Pork in Sweet Sauce. Another popular Shanghai cuisine.
Vegetable Rice because you have to have greens!
Overall, a satisfying meal but my tongue is a bit overwhelmed with sweetness and saltiness of every dish. Not the fault of the restaurant though; I was told that Shanghai cuisine really uses sugar and salt (and or soy sauce) like there’s no tomorrow. My sister said everything tasted great for her 🙂
This brand has spawned several other restaurants with the same Jesse name.
