It's back: that time of year when restaurants in Shanghai offer all kinds of set menus at great prices. Starting this Thursday (August 31) through September 10, the 11th edition of China Restaurant Week by DiningCity
begins its autumn 2017 run with awesome dining deals all over the city, with lunches from 68RMB and dinners from 108RMB, each with at least two courses. Booking is open now via the official website
and the DiningCity app (not directly through the restaurants), and you best move fast, as hot restaurants tend to book up quickly. Here are a few of our favourite deals on offer that both parents and kids can enjoy.
This 68RMB lunch menu offers your choice of several burgers or pizzas and a drink( choice of several beers, sodas, teas and juices) while the 108RMB dinner gets you loaded nachos, a burger or pizza and the same drink choices as the lunch deal.
Offering lots of choices for both an 108RMB lunch (more like brunch) or 188RMB dinner (both three-course): both begin with chips and salsa and continue with kid-friendly foods like ginger chicken quesadilla, Maya's breakfast burrito or pancakes with bacon and spiced piloncillo syrup, as well as crispy potatoes with chorizo and eggs. Smoked salmon and avocado toast and more are also part of the deal. Finally finish with fun desserts like churro bites with dipping sauces or a churro ice cream sandwich.
