When it comes to Chinese food, there are eight great cuisines of China, each with a distinct flavour profile. While Cantonese is the most popular here in Australia, try something new from the Shanghainese-inspired menu at New Shanghai. At the heart of this popular restaurant are ancient family recipes learned in Shanghai and passed down from generation to generation. These ancient recipes are the base of New Shanghai’s vibrant array of Shanghai-style soup dumplings, noodles, bubbling hot pots, and pan-fried buns, which can be enjoyed while taking in the chef’s live dumpling-making theatre. The ambient setting is also inspired by the bustling colourful streets of the city it is named after.
You’ll find Jiangsu dishes like Xiao Long Bao, which are delicate dumplings filled with a meat like pork or crab and a burst of hot broth soup; braised pork belly with sweet soy sauce; Cong You Bing (spring onion pancakes); and sweet red bean puffs for dessert.
