A Place to Try Traditional Chinese Breakfast In Shanghai
The breakfast place we visited is located near our Shanghai campus and it’s often where we pick up breakfast on the way to work:
桃园眷村 (Táoyuán Juàncūn)
Traditional Chinese Breakfast Items you should Try
Here’re are some of the most popular items on the breakfast menu in Shanghai – and we recommend you try all of them:
1. Steamed veggie buns
香菇素菜包 (xiānggū sùcàibāo) 13RMB.
Steamed buns (包子bāo zi) are very popular among Chinese people when deciding what to eat for breakfast. These buns usually present themselves as sweet or savory fillings wrapped in dough.
2. Fried dough stick
油条 (yóutiáo) 8RMB.
Deep-fried dough sticks (油条yòu tiáo) are another type of traditional Chinese breakfast. As China has become more open to foreign cultures, deep-fried dough sticks obtained a posh nickname as “Chinese-style French baguette” in that their shape resembles a French baguette.
3. Sugar-free soybean milk
无糖豆浆 (wútáng dòujiāng) 10RMB
Only 31RMB for a delicious & nutritious breakfast you can share with a friend!
