Shanghai Street Food Tour | JianBing – Chinese Breakfast Crepe

It is our first full day in Shanghai – In today’s video, we’ll be trying some of Shanghai‘s street food – First up, let’s find some breakfast – Alright guys, let’s go – We’ve just stumbled across a vendor selling baos – or steamed buns – It looks pretty popular – So we thought ‘Let’s try one!’ –

Luckily a local helped us order – because everything is in Chinese – We couldn’t read anything – and the lady who was selling the buns – couldn’t speak English either – So it was very hard for us – but luckily there was a local so Thank You! – Alright, let’s see what we got – This is the pork one – Oh yeah – That’s really yummy – Check this out – So flavourful – Sweet and salty – That’s a solid bun – And these are super cheap! – One of these buns only cost 1.

50RMB – That’s like 20-30c Australian – That’s crazy.

Really, really cheap! – My turn to try the spicy beef bao – You can see in the shop they were making them fresh – Let’s try it – Wow! – It’s spicy and the beef is so juicy – Yum – This round thing we were told it’s a sweet pancake – It’s purple in colour so I’m not sure if it’s – a certain flavour, sweet potato or something – Let’s see – It’s like hollow on the inside – It’s super flaky – Not really much flavour to it – But definitely sweet – I’m not sure if you’re meant to eat this with something – or maybe it’s good with some soy milk – I’d probably get a drink with this next time (it’s kind of dry) – but still worth a try – Definitely come here for their steamed buns – Those steamed buns were so good.

We’re going to grab another two – They’re delicious! – So good – Cheers – ‘Hao Chi’ I think that’s how you say delicious – Right here in these bags we’ve got something called JianBing – It’s a savoury crepe – with a whole bunch of filling in there – Let’s have a look – Oooo – First off she puts a crepe mixture onto the crepe pan – and then she puts a whole bunch of filling in there – Such as coriander – some black bean sauce – I’m not 100% sure though – This one here also has a Chinese fried doughnut – The texture – It’s not crispy or anything like that.

It’s a little soft – But maybe that’s because it was in a bag – and it’s kind of steamed itself – but look at that, that looks delicious – Let’s give it a bite – Mmmmmmm – Oh yeah – I forgot to mention – She also cracked two eggs per crepe as well – That tastes so good – This is a full carb breakfast here – but it’s delicious and I don’t regret it at all – So saucy – With a hit of that chilli – It’s hitting the spot right now – And this place is just a few doors down – from the steamed bun place we just had – Also very close to Jia Jia Tang Bao and Yang’s Dumpling – So this street here ‘HuangHe Rd’ – Full of street food.

Awesome! – I’m gonna have this one.

Malie’s going to have that one.

– and then we’re going to try the next JianBing – So I’m going to try the 2nd one which has a crispy cracker in the middle – I’m excited for this one.

I love anything crunchy.

– That crunch! – I think I like this one better than the other one – just because of the texture – Definitely can taste all the sauces in there – so it’s not dry at all – If you don’t like spice, you can get it without the Chilli oil in there – Whoever invented this, I love you! – So good! – There was so much street food – You can find pastries – Dumplings – and scallion pancakes – It was interesting to see these scallion pancakes – being made right in front of us! – After shallow frying – They’re baked furhter under the pan – So they’re nice and crispy – So we didn’t have to walk very for a delicious street food breakfast – We’re all carbed up now and ready to go on with our day – Now we’re off to Xitang Water Town – On our last video – We visited the ancient town of Xitang – One of China’s famous water towns – It is a town full of history – Ancient architecture – And interesting street food – If you missed it, make sure to check it out – We’ll leave a link in the description box below – Hey guys, – We’ve caught the bus back from Xitang Water Town – and now we’re back in Shanghai – Tonight we’re going to explore Yuyuan Gardens We entered Yuyuan garden and we saw a massive line for these dumplings – This place is called ‘Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant’ -We’ve got here a – bucket of pork xiao long baos – so there’s a dozen in here – and a Giant Pork & Crab XLB – Look how big that is – So we have to pour the vinegar in here via the – This dispenser – Let’s try one – They basically just dump the whole steamer in here – That pork filling is really, really tender – And the soup has a very nice flavour – It’s not too hot – So you can have it all in one bite – Let’s have another one – Yep! Would definitely raise these ones.
