Huai Hai Lu is a shopping area in downtown Shanghai. When you visit XinTian Di, you may just stroll down to Huai Hai Lu for some shopping as well!
We were there for dinner after our visit to Expo. Was totally exhausted, as the day we visited Expo was damn hot day! The queuing up process to visit pavilion was not cool, but yes, we made it, at least managed to see one pavilion - China Pavilion!
Tony is located at the 1st floor, at middle of Huai Hai Lu, near to Madang Road.
Never knew this restaurant was actually quite famous, but seeing the crowd and thought of having some spicy food which is not very expensive, we decided to check this restaurant out.
After I done a few "checks" on this place, I found out that Tony is having a few branches in Shanghai, which is serving the Shanghainese style Sichuan food. Comparatively cheaper version, but food was rather okay.
We ordered a Sichuan Stlye steamed fish. A huge fish, topped with really hot and spicy Sichuan sauce - RMB68, super worth! I have no idea what fish was that, but the texture was quite firm, and rather fresh. I am not a fish person, but the fish was quite okay to me, just that I didn't like that there's quite a lot of tiny bones, got to be extra careful when you eat this!
In Malaysia, we love the chili Sichuan chicken at Dragon Eye. Thus, we ordered the similar dish here in China to check out the difference. In fact, the taste was rather close, expect that, here it's a bit more spicy! Good to have it especially with beer. Bf love the local Tsingdao beer in China, which is quite refreshing, he claimed!
Lastly, cold dish - brinjal( already steamed) top with Sichuan mixed sauce(again)....really hot and spicy!
What a hot and spicy meal! I really felt that my lips were numb after eating those Sichuan food..anyway it was a nice experience, once a while is fine! HAHA
