Hairy Crab

by mkit

I will be in Shanghai in Sept 09. Anyone know where is good place for Hairy Crab??

Re: Hairy Crab

by OptimusPrimeShi

Wangbaohe, characteristic restaurant for Crab feast, but some expensive.

Re: Hairy Crab

Yup, Wang Bao He (also known as Central Hotel) is a pretty well-established name for hairy crab, but it could be expensive.
Alternatively, if you're seeking a more off-the-beaten-path experience, head to Tongchuan Lu in Putuo district where there's a whole street lined with seafood market stalls and restaurants.

You can always go to the source, Yangcheng lake, the home of hairy crab.
Here are some pictures.

OK now, can I be a bit unknowledgeable and ask what is "Hairy Crab"???

Re: Hairy Crab

by Jennwtb

The Hairy Crab from Yangzheng Lake is a famous delicacy in Shanghai cuisine and is prized for the female crab's ovaries.

Re: Hairy Crab

by ellyse

Crabs usually aren't that big (around the size of a human palm) but they have hairy legs, pincers and underbodies. Local autumn delicacy.
Friends went to Yangcheng Lake to eat crabs there, I think they said it was a fun trip, but more because of the company, not the crabs. I think it was a rather nondescript experience that you could perhaps save on.
Depending on when you're coming in September, it might not be full-blown hairy crab season yet.

Re: Hairy Crab

by gaolei

I agree, The hairy crab experience is not so good at the lake, but at least I can say I did it. I guess that's something. One more off the bucket list!

Re: Hairy Crab

by lindyz

So Ray ... Im curious ... did you eat the ovaries????? (I dont think Ill put that one on my bucket list!)

Re: Hairy Crab

by ellyse

Ovaries or roe, I like them all. :)

Re: Hairy Crab

by gaolei

I don't know. Now I am worried.

If I eat them will I feel an urge to move to Thailand?

Re: Hairy Crab

by guo_mei_xin

is the first week of Sept already the season for hairy crab?

Also, sorry for the weird question.. butwhen you say "hairy crab", is it really hairy? Or it's just a term?

Re: Hairy Crab

by ellyse

First week of September would be a bit too early, I think.
Yes, the pincers and legs are hairy.

Travel Tips for Shanghai

What to shop or see a local market?

by Travelchili about Xiangyang Fashion and Gift Market

Xiangyang Fashion and Gift Market offers nearly everything except food. The stalls are often filled with fake designer goods, but you can also find many local brands. Available goods: clothes, shoes, bags, jewelry, watches, gifts, local crafts, games, etc. It depends what is your view on buying fake designer goods. But you can get, for example, Adidas running shoes for RMB 100-130, shirts RMB 30-50, bags RMB 100-150. Between 10 and 30% of the initial price. Make sure to bargain hard - that's expected!

Is it really that good?

by diavenus about Nanxiang Mantou Dian

Read many reviews on this restaurant before I went to Shanghai and badly wanted to try the Xiao Long Bao. However, it is near impossible to get seats. Lots of pushing and shoving. No systematic way of allocating seats/tables. Everyone just stood behind a seat and waited like vultures.
Gave up in the end. A family in the same tour group managed to eat some Xiao Long Bao, but felt that they prefered what they found in Singapore.

TAKE A GOOD POSE!

Picture taking, site seeing. Lots of vendors are along the riverside selling cameras, postcards, flashcards and smart medias for digincams. They are also selling some toys and stuffs for the kids. Across the river you could also see the Oriental Pearl Tower.

Site of the First National Congress of the CPC

by Willettsworld

On July 23rd, 1921, the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China was held here at 106 Wantze Road (now 76 Xingye Road). Thirteen delegates including Mao Zedong attended the meeting. However, the Congress was forced to suspend its meeting when police searched the nearby on July 30th.

The site is a typical Chinese house built in 1920 which has a courtyard and a gate. In 1952, the house was renovated and turned into a memorial and it has been open to the public ever since. In the living room on the first floor where the congress was held, everything is placed as it was in 1921. The articles copied from the originals create an imposing atmosphere. Upstairs is an exhibition hall with more than a 100 revolutionary relics, documents, and photos on display. The exhibits cover the history of the Party's birth, the blooming of nation-wide communist teams, photos of the thirteen members, etc. In addition, a waxworks hall vividly reproduces the scene of this significant meeting.

Open: 9am-5pm daily. Admission: Free.
