Jianbing. (Was) My default, almost-everyday breakfast, from this lady who’s always across the street from our apartment every morning. See a video of how its made here. Ridiculously addicting fare.
Sheng Jian Bao. Always piping hot delicious.
Ro Pao. I eat this when I’m sick of jianbing. Two pork buns with some broth inside. Best eaten once served.
A beef-and-vegetables dish from a Chinese-Muslim eatery, which the Pinoy OFW’s such as myself treated as Shanghai’s version of the turo-turo. Sort of like beef kaldereta, but not really. Since I never learned Mandarin, I just point at the picture at the wall menu to order it. Served with hot soup.
Spicy (Szechuan?) noodle soup a-la hotpot from a street-side eatery. You pick the ingredients from this assortment.
