Midnight delight

My cousin got off late from work the other night and was starving! We knew we wanted American food but didn’t know what was still open. By that time, it was already midnight and most of the restaurants were already closed.

Don’t worry, there’s always Dakota! My cousin ordered a burger and we shared their unforgettable donuts with vanilla sauce for dessert! YUM!!!Image

Shanghai Cai Chang

Today, one of my local friends brought me to the neighborhood Food Market “Cai Chang” on Tangjiawan Lu and  Zhaozhou Lu. Crowded with many local consumers, you can use literally pennies and coins to buy what your heart desires. From colorful vegetables, to hairy crabs, to hanging meat, to fresh swimming fish and pig knuckles!

Although, this experience is definitely not the “Safeway/Wholefoods” experience with the organized checkout counters and friendly staffs helping each and everyone of your needs. On contrary, there’s a bit of a mosh pot feel to Shanghai grocery shopping with the intention of getting everything you need to make for dinner while squeezing through crowds and ducking from fists to stray away from pushy, aggressive consumers:)

Honestly, I would have been a bit scared if I went there alone as you could have probably found me squeezed into a dark corner trying to buy some tomatoes, but luckily I was accompanied by someone who knew what was going on.  I guess that’s Shanghai for ya! 🙂
