Ah, I think I’ll try taking food photos again. Were the dishes taste? Not nearly. Not enouch curry, not enough spiciness. The noodles were OK, but its nothing that I’ll lose sleep over.

And an afterthought: for any Pinoy living here -or for any other expat proud of their native cuisine- its easy to conclude that the more accessible Shanghainese cuisine leaves a lot to be desired. Sadly, most of the time, one’d proclaim -while munching on local foodstuf- how food back home is much, much better.
