Whampoa Club, Shanghai

3 Zhong Shan Dong Yi Lu , No. 3 on the Bund, 5th Fl.
Shanghai , China http://www.threeonthebund.com
86-21-6321-3737

The historic Union Building became “Three on the Bund” in 2004, and the fifth floor houses the 120-seat Whampoa Club. Located inside one of the Financial Street district's last siheyuan (courtyards), the restaurant has an Art Deco interior with gold and red tones and a lotus pond. The menu is Cantonese and Shanghainese cuisine with a contemporary interpretation. Executive chef Hsu Mou Ki prepares appetizers like Shanghainese sweet and sour pork ribs, and mains like braised prawns with onion in a sweet chili sauce. To cleanse the palate, 50 Chinese tea varieties are served in tea ceremonies.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Chef Jereme Leung of Whampoa Club Shanghai recently opened this Beijing spin-off in a replica of a traditional, four-sided Chinese courtyard home, hidden among the skyscrapers of the nascent financial district. Leung, who oversees the staff of talented on-site chefs, imprints his own style on the cuisine of Northern China, intensifying flavors and adding drama to the presentation: For instance, waiters pour soup tableside out of a teapot. The dining room sits underneath a a vast goldfish pond, so guests look up at the sky through a watery glass ceiling.

We loved: noodles infused with Sichuan peppercorns.
