East Coast Lagoon (东海岸) – Shanghai, China


From the name you know it’s somewhat related to Singapore cuisine. This place took over the previous Lau Pa Sak restaurant and started not too long ago. I was there to have some Singapore food but realized they changed hands. Nevertheless, it’s still Singapore food! But isn’t 东海岸 known as East Coast Park? Hmmm…

Curry Puff RMB8 - Not nice. Pastry too thick and unlike Old Chang Kee's pastry texture. However, the curry inside is really good! Hence wasted, it could be a lot better if the pastry was better.

Braised Duck Rice RMB35 - Duck meat was pretty ok and gave quite a lot. Yam rice was really good. Soup is clear and boiled with anchovies.

BBQ Sambal Mackerel RMB28 - I wanted to eat some fish as fish has a lot of bones in Shanghai and Jiangsu Province. Thought the fish would be small but no! It's quite big and I had difficulty finishing it! Nicely charred on the skin and loads of sambal applied inside. See pic below.

On the flip side, also a lot of sambal rubbed inside the slit. Awesome!

Rating: 4.5/5.

Taste: Pretty close to home and love the fish!

Portion: Above average.

Service: Not enthusiastic. Must remind them to top up water even though I placed the empty cup beside the aisle.

Ambience: Comfy and you won’t come out smelling like what  you ate.

Price: RMB93 in total. Around S$19.50.

RTE: I’ll probably would if I’m in Shanghai again! Haven’t try all their extensive menu offerings!
