Artsy fartsy foodieventure@Tian Zi Fang, Shanghai


Now that we got back to Shanghai, the temperature was slightly higher…but it was as chilly as ever. I had to walk in to one of the shops to grab a thick wool scarf to cover my neck as the chilly wind kept blowing throughout the whole day.

Today’s mission: Tian Zi Fang! An artsy fartsy place, filled with petite, cool looking shops, selling all sorts of stuffs, both decorative and edible.

Time to warm up a little as we walk. Grabbed some street snacks as we walked around TZF.


A roti canai wrapped with egg and yaocharkueh, hey…this was rather Taiwan-ish! Taste was just average. I was missing Taiwan again. The rice burger, too…was average. Yawns.

Hope to find something interesting next!


Which I did! Stumbled upon this really narrow and tiny shop selling pineapple tarts, and egg tarts. The buttery, sweet, fragrant aroma covered all over that stretch of street and there was a crowd surrounding the stall. What you can see in this photo

was exactly the size of the entire bakery, from moulding, to baking, to packing and display. Amazing!


This egg tart cost about RM 10. And…it..was…worth…every weakened ringgit. Though the egg tart rendition was fairly different from the traditional egg tarts we eat back in Malaysia. The texture was a little more on the hard curdled side, like a custard, and it was piping hot! Yummylicious to eat in such a crazy cold weather!

The egg tart distracted me all the way until I forgotten to snap any photos of the surroundings!

Worthy place for tourists to drop by! I gotta say I really enjoyed browsing through all the uniquely decorated petite shops, each special in its own way and character.
