Shanghai Snacks & Dim Sum

We walked around the area near our hotel in the morning in search of some local delicacies, and we found this little humble stall was crowded with people queuing up for talk away. We joined the bandwagon and be adventurous to check out the food. It's written in Chinese - 山东煎饼 - Shandong's Crepe/ pancake. It's nice to see this lady so dedicated preparing the pancake while we queue up for our order.

She first flatten the mixed flour on the flat pan, then add 2 eggs into it, later she add some scallions, spring onion, two type of special sauce. Before she folds it up, she also add those crispy fried dough. Taste super yummy and something really special for us. We love it so much!

Merely RMB 2.50 for 2 pieces - we love it!

Then we walked to around and found this shop which serves some dim sum item, as usual Xiao Long Bao is there, and I ordered something special, which I can't get in Malaysia.
Check this out - the Siew Mai - but it's totally different from our Siew Mai - inside is glutinous rice. But this one doesn't suit my taste bud - the skin is quite thick and the rice is rather good!

And check out the dirty basket serving the Xiao Long Bao - I think they didn't clean it for ages!

The Xiao Long Bao here taste so so only - of course no way near the Ding Tai Fung's version!
Luckily, the pan fried dumpling and Beef puff were good!

Of course this shop is patron by the locals, prices are super cheap compared to those branded and posh restaurant.

All these can be found near Yu Yuan Road愚园路, Jing An Qu上海静安区, Shanghai.
