Wujie The Bund

Is it a habit to have a vegetarian meal in Shanghai?

Without any plan for dinner, I decided to try out Wujie The Bund (Michelin Guide 2017 – Bib Gourmand, 2 fork & spoon), located at Bund 22. The environment and service is relatively good, the only thing I kind of dislike is that the staff is too concerned about my choices and kept suggesting me to have the classic ones, while I insisted to have the new selections on the menu (those classics don’t suit my taste).

The Chinese names of their vegetarian dishes are quite poetic, not in English though. My favourite is the purple cabbage and white radish roll, its sour taste is very appetising. The pumpkin soup is another one, it is creamy and sweet. The shepherd’s purse vegetable and winter bamboo risotto is not bad too, very light. The dessert, caramelised apple flutes, is quite ordinary. And why there’s no Chinese desserts?

The whole experience is alright, but when it comes to vegetarian meal, of course I prefer and recommend the one that has a Michelin star from the Fu series, Fu He Hui, it is more refined and more Zen in all aspects. Wujie The Bund is more casual, suitable for ordinary occasions.

在上海吃素食是不是成了習慣?

到了上海沒安排所以決定試一下大蔬無界,外灘22號已經是這趟旅行第二次來了。大蔬無界的環境挺好服務也不錯,就是服務員比較執著建議我們點經典菜色,可是我也是比較堅持要隨心點新菜色,其實經典菜色比較濃味不合我口味。

他們的菜名都挺有詩意,湯有中式的雪蓮五福盅和西式的心意-南瓜濃湯,前者很清後者有南瓜的甜味和滑嫩的豆腐。我最喜歡是紫羅-紫甘藍與白蘿蔔卷,酸酸的很開胃。另一道冷盤是桃夭-桃樹膠與柚子配上海每吃沙拉都搭配的芝麻芥末醬(為什麼?)。熱菜有清淡的青青子衿-白蘿蔔,青蒜與腐衣豆排,和軟糯的七彩布依-豆腐丁,雞頭米蓉,山藥蓉,裹上七彩米與糯米。主食是芳草地-西式的薺菜汁和冬筍汁燴飯,也是不錯。甜品是普通的焦糖蘋果卷,為什麼全是西式沒中式甜品?

總體來說是挺好吃的,不過說到素食,當然是獲得米芝蓮一星的福系列的福和慧,各方面都更精緻更有禪意。平常吃開素食的大蔬無界會是不錯的選擇,比較大眾化。
