Family style Shanghainese cuisine in a modern setting can be enjoyed at Hotel Royal. In addition to the open dining room four private rooms are available by reservation. For those new to regional cuisine within China, Shanghainese dishes originate in the delta areas of Jiangsu and Hangzhou. Dishes have a special savory quality to them that comes from two surprising secret ingredients, sugar and strong cooking wine (the alcohol burns off in the cooking, leaving a distinct flavor in a dish). Catalpa Garden makes a great place to try authentic food from the region around Shanghai.
