Did you hear? There’s a second location of Tacolicious in Jing’an. It opened on March 25. It’s a massive space that seats over 120 people. Go check it out.

Tacolicious is known for their double-stuffed tacos—that’s a fully-loaded hard-shell taco swaddled in a soft, toasted tortilla. It’s ¥60-65 for a pair. They have more than a dozen kinds of tacos, of which three are vegetarian. Personal favorites: Beef Bulgogi, Fried Fish, Steak Asado.

This is a new dish at Cuivre, one of my favorite French restaurants in Shanghai. Chef Michael Wendling wanted dishes that were easy to reheat for delivery, hence the rustic French classic, Beef Bourguignon (¥168). Thick chunks of beef are stewed in a wine and spices with garlic, onions, and mushrooms until the meat is fork tender. Comes with a side of pan-fried polenta. Great additional side: mashed potatoes (¥48).

Suan Tang Fei Niu (¥83 酸汤肥牛)

This is my ultimate rainy day Chinese food go-to. Suan Tang Fei Niu is a sour-spicy soup with thin-sliced beef, enoki mushrooms, bean sprouts, and vermicelli noodles. The broth is fortified with fresh and vinegar-pickled chilies and peppers, and preserved vegetables. I order from Maurya (孔雀), an upscale Sichuan restaurant chain with six locations in Shanghai.

Only Grand Gateway, Raffles Changning and Jing’an Kerry Centre locations have it on the delivery menu.

For the nth time: Homeslice has new Spring 2020 pizzas. Favorite of the new seasonal pizzas is the Chicken Tikka by The Bull & Claw chef Hardeep Somal. But I tend to differ to the good ol’ spicy sausage.
