辛香汇 – Shanghai, China


This is another backlog which I haven’t got time to write about. This is a popular chain of restaurants in Shanghai and they have recently penetrated Suzhou. Many tourists coming to Shanghai may not know this restaurant unless a local bring or recommend them there. I got to know this place through my friends who were base in Shanghai also, much before me. This place serves a mix of Shanghai cuisine and more of Szechuan dishes. They do have a lot of dishes that they created for their menu. All their outlets are literally packed with people almost everyday especially weekends when you have to queue up like mad. Reason why it is so popular, is that their dishes are cheap and portions are huge! Check out the pics below:

Every out let has a reception and waiting area where you press for a ticket and wait for your number to be called out. You can also pre-order your dishes at the computer screen beside the reception.
