Whampoa Club, Shanghai
The historic Union Building became “Three on the Bund” in 2004, and the fifth floor houses the 120-seat Whampoa Club. Located inside one of the Financial Street district's last siheyuan (courtyards), the restaurant has an Art Deco interior with gold and red tones and a lotus pond. The menu is Cantonese and Shanghainese cuisine with a contemporary interpretation. Executive chef Hsu Mou Ki prepares appetizers like Shanghainese sweet and sour pork ribs, and mains like braised prawns with onion in a sweet chili sauce. To cleanse the palate, 50 Chinese tea varieties are served in tea ceremonies.
