The best grilled cheese in the world. I am serious. I went with friends and we had three different sandwiches, which they happily cut into thirds so we could try them all. I will sound foolish, but the "mac & cheese" one was my favorite. But the one with brie and arugula was great too - as was the "Hunan Spicy Pork with Peppers and Mozzarella." You really have to go try it out, but try to get there a little early or late. The seating is limited and there are lots of hungry people waiting for seats. Love this place.
I had no idea you could find cinnamon rolls like these in China. They are better than home made. I like them without the frosting - they are warm, fragrant, full of cinnamon, and really - they taste awesome plain. There are several different varieties, including pecan, and I found them all to be charming. I hear that they will start having coffee and tea soon - next week maybe? - and this is where I want to go for breakfast.
Great location, well laid out and designed and a mouth watering menu at not break the bank prices. Everything ticks the boxes apart from the god awful service.
Our waitress came back twice to say first the salmon and then the chicken were finished, but the manager had known since the night before. Salads came on time, but the confit canard came 45 mins later. Free espressos were given to make up for shoddy service, but the management didn't communicate this to the staff, who were darting around in confusion.
Though the food was great, I won't be going back till they get their sh1t together.
Amazing food - been four times recently! I voted for Saffron on the City Weekend site - why is there NO Best Indian on there? Have those guys not eaten the food here or something? Went to Restaurant week with my wife. We tried a few places but Saffron got my vote as the best of the week plus, it's THE BEST INDIAN FOOD IN SHANGHAI!!!!
