Lately Hungry Man joints have been popping up across Shanghai like wild flowers. For almost 2 years I’ve been getting my morning coffee from the same spot on Yongkang Lu, near Xiangyang Lu.
It’s a grandmother-run 2 person restaurant, and I love it. It looks like this :
111 Yongkang Lu
They serve up some of the tastiest chicken curry in the city, for just a few RMBs. On a typical day I’ll order the Chicken Curry Rice, with a fried egg on top, and a bottle of coke (one of those small little glass ones). Total cost ? 13.5 RMB. Amazing, and it fits into the Hungry Man budget.
So, so, so good.
The potatoes in the curry have been slow roasted over night, so they are soft and taste like butter. There’s also fresh coffee available for 15 RMB a glass, and it cures the common hangover.
Go try it out now ! When the weather’s nice, just pull the table outside onto the sidewalk and enjoy the sunshine.
Hungry Man, over and out !
