after few days in Shanghai, you realize that Yunnan style food is very different from the Chinese one and is more Thai or Vietnamese, We had lunch in this large restaurant in the French Concession The tea leaves salad was excellent.

Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly
governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French
Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that
is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While
it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will
sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their
mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area
seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet,
