1221 (Yīèrèryī cāntīng) Review
This stylish but casual eatery is a favorite with expatriates. The streamlined dining room is very chic, its crisp white tablecloths contrasting with the warm golden walls. Shanghainese food is the mainstay, with a few Sichuan dishes thrown in for good measure. From the extensive 26-page menu (in English, pinyin, and Chinese), you can order dishes like sliced you tiao (fried bread sticks) with shredded beef, a whole chicken in a green-onion soy sauce, and shaguo shizi tou (pork meatballs).
