To start with, Madame Shanghai is simply a very beautiful space to dine in. Gorgeous lighting and decor, I did feel transported elsewhere. Neither of us could decide what to choose so went with the chef’s choice… Each dish was tasty and interesting and consistently good. We started out with cocktails, and these definitely have a twist here with inventive Asian ingredients and themes, and moved on to a tasty glass of wine.
The serving size was just enough and the waiter even asked us if we wanted more… The surprise was the dessert, as Asian desserts really are different than Western ones (usually much less sweet and with different textures). So, to get two really luscious and rich Western-style desserts was a good surprise: and these were really good.
Such a good experience I didn’t feel like taking photos of each course. Perhaps next time. I’m also tempted to come back for yum cha. And to try Lotus, of whose restaurant empire this belongs.
