One of the best things about the Shanghai food scene is that it’s constantly growing and evolving. New restaurants are opening up every week, each one competing to serve unique foods in over-the-top-settings. While this is exciting, it’s always good to go back to basics and experience the Chinese culture that can so easily get lost in the ever growing metropolitan hype of Shanghai. If you’re looking for cheap, authentic and never-changing grub, the street food of Shanghai is your answer. It’s Simple. It’s Fast. It’s Cheap.
