Colors of Taste in Shanghai

“Food” is the word that gets us exciting at all times, irrespective of mood or situation. Changing world with increasing proximity due to technology has filled most us with the anxiety to know people and their culture off limits and boundaries. A big fact is most of us are used to a different daily routine. Yet, when most of us are trying to get to know people at different parts through business travel or personal purpose, food is the main point to be considered. For many, it is an adventure and for few other,s it is not. Unlike people from West or other Asian countries, most Indians, especially Hindus eat more chicken, fish or lamb. This limits the variety of food when travelling to any other country. Since most others prefer pork and beef. That’s my case too. I was happy to experiment some nice sea food, which I was always willing to try in different forms (unlike my hubby who like to eat what he knows or had been eating since childhood).

This May, I got an unanticipated opportunity to travel to Shanghai, China (a place that I never thought of travelling). The experience was indeed very good. I will continue to write more on my experience about living in Shanghai but I am more excited in showcasing visually, specially the food. So, for now I am posting some pictures. Hope each one of you stopping by will enjoy them and I will be glad to share any information, if required.

  1. Hi! Nice post – good to see food from other cultures! I am always curious about trying new things! I found the first picture veeery interesting! would you perhaps know what sauce was used for the spinach pasta with beets? Hope you have fun in Shanghai! Cheers

    • Thank you very much for stopping by to leave a comment for this budding writer. It truly inspires me. I am not too sure of the sauce used but i did taste a lot of olive oil and butter in it. I can get this information but i don’t promise because i have moved out of Shanghai back to my own country.

  2. Interesting post, as someone living in Italy it’s nice to see so many pasta dishes. I am aware of the dispute between who had pasta first the Italians or the Chinese. I don’t really care as long as it tastes good.
