我們在上海沒去過幾個韓國餐館。屈指一數大概少於五個。文小館是五個中間的一個。文小館是我們在新天地附近用點評找到的一家韓國料理。點評給它的評語還不錯,我們就照着點評上的地址去探個究竟。

 

找啊找啊,就是找不到,倒是在附近看到大韓民國臨時政府的舊址和一個很漂亮做指甲的店子。還看到臺灣富邦銀行的分公司。看來臺灣和大陸的銀行界走的越來越來近了。

20141023_211515_LLS我們在附近照着地址找,可是過了一個黑黑的弄堂,餐館的地址就不見了。沒法子,只有問人。好不容易找到一個住在附近的人跟我們說:餐館就在那個黑黑的弄堂裏。

弄堂裏就只有從兩個窗戶透出來暗暗的光和一個暗暗的路燈。我們抹着黑往裏面走。轉了個小彎才看到餐館的門。餐館裏只有簡簡單單的設備,沒有一點裝潢。桌子和椅子都是舊舊的。好像不怎麼穩似的。嗯,說不定菜好吃,味道正吧,既來之則安之,坐下來試試看吧。

小菜不怎麼樣,比我們美國這邊韓國餐館的小菜差不多。

我們叫了好幾個菜,可惜他們的菜比不上我們吃過的其他幾家韓國餐館。甚至連我們這維吉尼亞州Annandale的韓國店都比他們好。可能是我們的要求太高吧。不過,我們是不會再去了。20141023_201549 20141023_202229 20141023_203450 20141023_203618

It’s a restaurant, btw. We are not talking about getting around a fire and BS all night long.

The restaurant is famous for baked whole fish and they have several restaurants in Shanghai to proof its popularity. We went to the one on Huaihai Lu, 淮海路 in 浦西, 上海。

下酒的小菜。点了黑牌的石库门。味道都不错。花生米泡在甜酸的醋里吃我还是第一次。东西很精致。味道清淡。牛肉有嚼劲。切的极薄。

印度的薄饼煎的很好。这是我们的主食。

Four choices of fish。We chose 江团鱼。又称“鮠鱼。我的老家湖北叫它“回鱼”。

We had one of the better seats in the restaurant overlooking 淮海路。

There are seven ways to season the fish ranging from mild to fire。

 

 

Nicely decorated。Very busy。We had to wait for 35 minutes。There were six parties before us。

Here it was:tender,mild  seasoning,a lot of fish meat,flavorful sauce。The only problem:the fish was too large for the two of us。

A surprising new find: 台北美食街 May 5, 2014

We’ve been in Shanghai for three some years and we didn’t find this place until this afternoon:台北美食街 in 徐家汇。The food court is in the fifth floor of the 2nd phase 百脑汇 building。

The fifth floor.

梁山伯与祝英台,I saw this moving picture at 台中大戏院 when I was in JH. Still remember all the songs in 黄梅调。

I didn't know this.

EVery Taiwanese knows this sad and beautiful Taiwanese song. For a 外省人, I like this song a lot.

台南火车站

Either tomorrow for lunch or some other time in October we’ll be here for a visit. We’ll be leaving Shanghai for home on Tuesday.

Time flies when you are having fun exploring new things at a new place in a new city half a world away.

Many old movie posters on the wall added some nostalgie to my feeling for the place. Hope their food is equally memorable.

We’ll find out soon.

I am pretty sure it is operated by a businessman from Taiwan. Rich Taiwanese benefited from 马英九’s 三通 policy but he created many job opportunities for people in China. He also helped bit up real estate prices in Taipei such as 帝寳. I call it 滴报: a typical trickle down economic activity: for peoole, such as taxi drivers and foot massage people, who rely on rich people for their livelihood.
