Swensen’s on the third floor of Metro Tower (1111 Zhao Jia Bang Road) is a great ice cream shop. They offer good Italian Noodles as well. We had great dinner at the outside garden tonight. The scene is amazing! The twin tower of the Grand Gateway is on the left – beautiful building with a big shopping mall in the middle (with bit TV screen on it) in the middle and 48-story high-raising tower on the both side. It is a great place to have dinner or ice cream.
I took the night scene with Davon’s camera, and will update this entry with pictures after I get them.
How hard it is to book a seat today in Shanghai. I called about 5 restaurants, and all of them are fully booked. (Namely, Yuxin on the Bund, Ying Qi on Jululu, Kathleen’s 5, BARBAROSSA in People’s Park, and Peace Mansion at Fenyang Road) Other reservation phone lines are busy. What a crazy city! From the business of restaurant, I believe it can be an indicator that the economy is going well.
Many bars are very good, but in Shanghai, not so many bars requires dress-up.
