Shanghai cuisine has long been known for its large variety and light taste. They are not common in Beijing, and high quality ones are particularly rare.
Cook Restaurant, which specializes in cooking Shanghai dishes, lies in the bustling and easy-to-find Nan Xin Cang Cultural Street, an area that still maintains much of its 600-year root. As a two-storied restaurant, Cook is huge. However, they manage to keep a very relaxing atmosphere. The manager and chefs are all from Shanghai, insuring that the restaurant stays true to its roots.
Choose from dozens of specialties: Stewed Yellow Croaker Fillets in Rice with Sauce, Stir-fried Eel, Sauceed Shrimps, Stir Fried Shrimps, and Tofu with Crab Meat Sauce just to name a few. Their prices range from RMB 20 to RMB 80. Also recommended are Maître Noodles, Pork Rib Noodles, and their ever popular Springtime Noodles. The Noodles is most renowned in Shanghai cuisine. A must-try for anyone not familiar with Shanghai dishes.
