As everybody knows, Chinese Mitten Crab is the star product of Shanghai. Every Autumn, from the end of September to early October, people from all over China come to Shanghai to enjoy the crab festival. And this dish is a famous local Shanghai dish. It's made of crab meal, crab meat and pork. And you can eat it whenever you want.

This dish is a little bit unpleasant, but it's very good for the health. It can bring you more Yang-energy and make you stronger. Actually it's Steamed Turtle in Crystal Sugar Soup. Sometimes we eat things to get a certain result, just like taking medicine, and it doesn't matter what the food is. Don't think that Chinese people are crude and they eat everything. This is actually a famous dish in Shanghai, so if you don't mind eating something unusual, just go ahead:)

On the table of the Chinese people, there are numerous types of food, cold and hot dishes; vegetable, meat; pork, fish, you can just eat whatever you want. The meat dish is the most important, it's the big dish of a meal, but vegetables have never been left out because they can balance the fat of the meats. Caotou is a typical local vegetable of Shanghai, so when you order dishes in a restaurant, don't forget this one:)

Gongka Cafe for the Chinese people is an very important place where those literature authorities made secret conference in the troubled times. It was once destroyed, but now you can find it reopening in the underground of the original place. Anyway it's an old cafe bar with many old things which can probably take you to the mysterious years...
