KIDS vs. FOOD – BOBA TEA (BUBBLE TEA)
Chinese and Shanghai street food, excellent and speedy, a truly novel addition to the repertoire. They basically have three dishes: get the Shanghai crepe with brisket, the steamed bun with spare rib, and the Chinese hamburger with cumin lamb. It is all very good, in that order of preference I would say. Lots of smoothies and bubble teas and the like, but you will have to ask someone else about those. My bottled water was just fine. I suspect I’ll end up going here a lot.
Try the Shanghai Crepe (Jian Bing) with the 7-spice duck.
The Japanese onigiri (stuffed rice triangles wrappen in seaweed) are good too.
