 The first thing that hit me when I landed was my hunger.  I didn’t know it, but this was the start of my endless search for mystical Shanghai food. I have only one rule, If you haven’t had it before, try it”.  This rule has lead me to devour countless dumplings, hand smashed pancakes, Nutella waffles, stir fry octopus, seared pig ear, and spring sponge cake, just to name a few. I have noticed that since I’ve been here in Shanghai, the food portions are smaller but my appetite has also gotten smaller too.  Little meals tend to be enough to fill my American belly. I do wonder what will happen when I return to Texas… where everything is bigger.
