World-renowned Chengdu chef Lan Guijun brings his delicate renditions of classic Sichuan cuisine to Shanghai, opening a Yu Zhi Lan branch in a private villa nestled in the heart of Jingan. With a rather unassuming facade and simple decor, the emphasis is all placed on the dishes. Highlights include Lan’s signature “golden thread noodles,” skillfully hand-cut and made from duck yolks, and the abalone, drenched in a rich gravy and bean paste sauce that balances sweet and savory perfectly. Two different course sets are available for lunch and three for dinner, both by reservation only.
