Kaofu 烤麸

recommendation by fang

This is a typical fresh dish of Shanghai. It's dark but sweet. There are several ingredients that you are going to fall in love with like Heimu'er木耳 (which is a kind of black edible tree mushroom), peanuts, and Kaofu (a famous food in southern China made of unpeeled wheat). Well, I'm quite fortunate because my mother cooked it very well. For you guys, you can find it for example at Gongdelin 功德林 restaurant, etc. Or you can buy cans of Kaofu in supermarkets in Shanghai.

Tian'ou 甜藕

recommendation by fang

fresh & funky

Tian'ou is my favorite sweet dish from Shanghai. It's means sweet root of lotus. The interesting thing is that they fill the apertures of the lotus root with sticky rice. Then they dip it in a sugar sauce, and sometimes they add some osmanthus essence which tastes so good! You'll find it in local restaurants of Shanghai.

I like this dish soooo much, it's my big love. However, I'm not too sure about recommending this dish to you guys, since I think the main ingredient is not very welcome in countries other than China. But it's really so good, and I ensure that it's very clean. So, please take a deep breath... it's...pork intestine. To be honest, if you like the flavor of black bean sauce, and if you like sweet things, you'll enjoy this dish. :p
