JYJ Noodle Bar is a popular upmarket Taiwanese chain in Shanghai that does excellent noodles. All outlets are located in malls.
The noodles aren’t cheap in comparison to my usual street-side haunts. You pay a premium for the quality of the noodles, the mall locale, and the better than average decor and service. Though, the noodles are pretty great, and if you find yourself in need but don’t want to grime it out at a hole-in-the-wall, JYJ will be satisfactory.
It’s a popular chain, expect a wait during peak hours. Good for a working day lunch, especially if you don’t want to grime it out at a local hole-in-the-wall.
