So many places to visit, so many delicious things to eat. Where to start, in a strange, new city? These nifty guides take visitors through the potentially bewildering process of finding authentic eats, across a variety of destinations. With a focus on what to eat, as much as where to eat, IN 12 DISHES will appeal to food-centric travelers who desire meaningful dining experiences across the gamut. The core assumption is that travelers want to plunge headfirst into local staples - iconic dishes that define a place. They want pad thai in Bangkok, bun cha in Hanoi, pao mo in Xi'an, shojin ryori in Kyoto and assam laksa in Penang. But...where to find the best? Highlighting12 must-eat dishes, with meaty information on where to find them, there's more than enough to give travelers the food heads-up. Depending on the city, there will also be features on cooking schools, regional restaurants, great cafes, food markets, day trips, walking tours and local eating etiquette. Gorgeously photographed and written in a snappy, engaging style, IN 12 DISHES is the indispensable guide for food-obsessed travelers. SHANGHAI Dazzling modernity. Enduring customs. Futuristic architecture. Art deco edifices. Cutting-edge couture. Traditional Chinese values. Ramshackle back streets. Blingy retail. Pre-dawn tai-chi. All night night-life. Michelin-starred chefs. Centuries-old food-ways. If one city has it all, it's Shanghai, the engine-room of China's super-star economy. Walk just a few blocks and you'll see everything from chi-chi young things shopping for the latest designer threads, to street-food vendors hawking rustic fare from humble mobile carts. Shanghai is exhilarating, dynamic and endlessly fascinating. But, when you're hungry, where do you start in a city with so much on its menu? Let SHANGHAI IN 12 DISHES be your essential dining primer, profiling twelve essential dishes, and a raft of places to find them. Plus, you'll get the heads-up on some world-class cafes, a day-trip itinerary, how to graze through iconic food streets, the low-down on the legendary hairy crab and much more besides. There's even a recipe or two. Welcome to eating like a local, Shanghai style!
