Shanghai Tang Cafe

Map shows the location of Shanghai Tang Cafe

Best known as a trendy Chinese clothing brand, Shanghai Tang company has recently opened its own restaurant embodying the brand's distinctive take on contemporary Chinese chic.

The kitchen is run by Jerome Leung, an award-winning chef known for his 'New Chinese Cuisine' which combines traditionally-inspired flavours with impressive modern style and presentation.

Take your pick from a variety of dishes including xianji (salty cold chicken), foie gras with hawthorn jelly and sorbet, crispy prawns with wasabi mayonnaise and pomegranate, and roasted Mongolian-style lamb rack.

The restaurant is attached to Xintiandi, an upmarket entertainment complex and new landmark in Shanghai where stone tenements known as 'shikumen' have been turned into a fashionable shopping, eating centre and gallery area.

The blocks of these buildings, with their preserved walls and tiles, give tourists the feel of stepping back into the bustling Shanghai streets of the 1920s and 30s.
