The delicious Shanghai cuisine is also irresistible to us. After crazy shopping, we reached a renowned restaurant in Shanghai: Mei Long Zhen Restaurant at Nanjing Road to try a lot of Shanghai local specialties, such as Sponge Cake Made by Lard and Fruits, shi zi tou (a kind of meatball), Shanghai dumplings and Cold Noodle with Sauce. Shanghai people have a "sweet tooth", so do I. Therefore I was full with satisfaction, totally forgetting that I was on a diet.
