Today is the last day of school - hooray! To celebrate we had a local jian bing vendor come into to provide us with a breakfast pancake. The pancake is made using dough on a round hotplate, to which is added egg, a sweet brown paste, chilli sauce, coriander, chives, pickles and a crispy savoury cracker. So delicious!
I love this restaurant, they have branches all over Shanghai. They do the best soup dumplings 小笼包 (xiao long bao) and all their food is just so clean and fresh.
