Arriving in Shanghai at the height of summer is certainly an experience - high humidity coupled with sweltering heat. It was a real pleasure to eat at Red Door - a modestly sized restaurant tucked away on a fairly quiet road. It served lovely small appetiser dishes (a Shanghai speciality), creamy and rich tasting fresh water prawns with Shanghainese crab roes, not to mention silkily cooked bean shoots.
What was enjoyable? A small unpretentious restaurant serving quality genuine Shanghainese food.
What was not enjoyable? Can't think of any.
NB: Please, if you like it, don't put it in any guidebooks - just enjoy!!!
