Ye Shanghai 夜上海 – My One Michelin Star Birthday

Shanghainese cuisine is one of my favourite types of Chinese cuisines. For this year birthday, I decided to spend my family dinner at Ye Shanghai – a Michelin one-starred restaurant of 2016, where unsurprisingly offers a traditional yet modern Shanghainese fare.
The branch we visit is located within Marco Polo Hotel Hong Kong at Tsim Sha Tsui, which is seen better than the other branch at Pacific Place in terms of quality.

We order some cold starters from the a la carte menu, starting with a smoked whole yellow fish, very silky and full of flavor; and a crispy bean curd roll filled with mushroom strips.

Some signatures are Peking duck with steaming hot pancakes and braised beef ribs in brown sauce, which is extremely tender.
The remaining duck meat is sauteed with green onions and served with crunchy sesame pocket, while my favourite is a single-serving pork belly cooked in a sweet soy-based thick sauce, along with a piece of fluffy slider bun. Technically a must-have, the steamed pork dumpling is perfectly excelled with a soupy filling.

For desserts, they serve a cross between typical Shanghainese and Western menu, where we absolutely fond of the beautifully plated mango sago pudding with sorbet and coconut cream, as well as the pineapple yuzu mousse with a scoop of homemade jasmine tea ice cream. They are so impressive!
