While traversing the Veranda Bayside of SM Mall of Asia last Sunday, an elegant-looking Chinese restaurant called Modern Shanghai caught our eye. That is where the three of us (hubby, me and son) had our early dinner consisting of the following: Pan-fried Shanghai Pork Buns, Signature Shanghai Fried Noodles and Shandong Style Shredded Chicken.
I didn’t expect that our son would enjoy these Pan-fried Shanghai Pork Buns, but he did. He devoured two pieces of these minus the spring onions. As the name suggests, these are Shanghai Pork Buns that are pan-fried, making the bottom part golden brown which gives an added crunch to every bite.
Signature Shanghai Fried Noodles are Shanghai-style noodles stir-fried with pork cutlets and veggies (bok choy and wombok) in dark soy sauce. This was really good, but the taste was a bit overpowering.
I found this Shandong Style Shredded Chicken a bit bland at first, but its taste became more apparent after a few bites. It was delicious in a subtle kind of way.
Shanghai Lily is Modern Shanghai’s signature drink. This cold beverage is a mix of lychee, grapefruit honey, mango juice, chrysanthemum tea and Sprite with fresh mint. I wanted to try this seeing that the price was quite affordable. It was not too sweet, it was refreshing, and the taste of its ingredients nicely complemented each other. I liked this!
We finished everything on our plates, and because we ordered just the right amount of food and the right combination of food, we left Modern Shanghai satisfied but not so full and heavy.
