Shanghai is, after all, China's richest and most sophisticated city.
Kudos to fellow Shanghainese, the city will undoubtedly be the powerhouse that drives China through the 21st century, becoming once again the dominant East Asian, if not the global star metropolis. Shanghai Expo in 2010 is coming soon!
The typical Shanghai dishes are:
Tipang - pork rump
Shui jing xia ren - Crystal-like shrimps in rice wrapper
Suji - veggie chicken
Suya - veggie duck
Shenjie mantou and the most famous Xiaolongbao i.e.petty pork dumpling with gravy
