Classic Spring Rolls

Shanghai Alley’s menu consists of traditional Chinese foods with recipes as old as time. Their interior, with decorations on the wall and dim atmosphere, looks very similar to street restaurants in China.

Xiao Long Bao (aka Soup Dumplings) is probably Shanghai’s most famous food, and Shanghai Alley does their home country proud. Available with a delicious combination of ingredients inside these little bags of rice flour, they were one of the highlights of our meal.

There are plenty of baos available at Shanghai Alley, including the Sheng Jian Bao, which is a large pan-fried bao with delicious pork inside of a mantou (fluffy steamed bun). Another is the classic Jiaozi (Chinese dumpling) with a savoury dipping sauce.


Another highlight is their fried rice, with several options available including the traditional Shanghai fried rice or the Yangzhou fried rice shown in the picture below. Yangzhou fried rice is made with egg, shrimp, sweet Chinese sausage, peas and carrots.
