Shanghai Restaurant
“Tianzifang is a tourist shopping and cafe area in Shanghai in the Old French Quarter. Unlike the better known Xintiandi area nearby, the area retains an “organic and original” feel because the area hasn’t been markedly reconstructed in recent years. Instead you’ll see buildings, alleys and streets of the old French Quarter with later Chinese additions piled on.”

“众所周知南京最繁华的地方要属新街口了,作为亚洲最大的地铁站,这里堪称是一个“地下美食王国”。 很多南京上下学的学生在上学和放学的路上,总喜欢到这里来买些小吃。 一鸣真鲜奶吧、串串、手抓饼、驴肉火烧、岩烧、烤鱿鱼...可能这些你在其他地方也能吃到,但毋庸置疑的是,这里的口味一定是最有保障也最正宗的。毕竟没几把刷子,还真不敢在这种繁华地带开店。 当然,更完美的是,在吃到美食的同时,你还可以顺带把新街口周边的商场逛个遍,绝对能够让你吃到肚撑逛到腿软。 人均:¥50 营业时间:开放广场,各商铺开放时间不同 地址:江苏省南京市地铁新街口站”
