The Inimitable Mr. Kwan
While he illicits endless annoyance as an administrator, the man does know his food and drink. Here he treats to a night at 'New Heights' overlooking the Bund. The wine was adequate. The vodka was watered down. The food was Western (but good - had a lovely pork chop, though I question how much it was 'inspired' by Sichuan since it had no spice whatsoever - but it was still rather yummy). But the view...the view was spectacular. While dining we were treated to the spectacle of the gradual creep of the light display that is Shanghai at night (they love their colored lights here guys, really). This has to be the best venue in the city for observing the powering-up of the Bund. Only Sasha and Aaron will appreciate this: The building of which we were on top is Three on the Bund, which also houses Jean Georges. Long story short (well maybe it's not that long afterall untill we go), Taeko and I have definite plans for an eating outing.
