Tea and Steamed Buns, Shanghai

One evening we were looking for a place to eat and we stumbled across Tea and Steamed Buns which is very close to our hotel on Tian Yao Qiao Road in Shanghai. It was quiet by the time we dined, it was about 8pm and there weren’t many people there. However, the next day when we walked past we did notice how busy the place was – a good sign perhaps?


We started with silken tofu – it was served cold but the tofu was silky smooth and the sauce had a hint of chili which gave it a nice kick.


‘The Mother’ couldn’t go past the xiao long bao – one of his favourites. I was surprised that we didn’t eat more dumplings in Shanghai – these were the only xiao long bao that we had. I remembered during our honeymoon, when we went to Shanghai, every single meal consisted of some sort of dumplings. These little babies were good but ‘The Mother’ still preferred the one at Din Tai Fung.


We couldn’t go past the chicken – half a chicken – they were good, however, I found the sauce a little salty which was a shame.


Last but not least, and probably most important – vegetables.


Service minimal, food was scrumptious and came out relatively quickly. Definitely wouldn’t mind coming back here and try their other dishes.
