I just have one thing to say before we get started on the dim sum here: DO NOT GET THE ORANGE JUICE. The orange juice is RMB¥208 a pitcher. I repeat, RMB¥208 a pitcher. These better have been imported Brazilian oranges picked yesterday, flown in this morning, and freshly squeezed by human labor this second. Only the last part was probably true.
Gui Hua Lou 桂花楼 at Pudong Shangri-La offers a 58 dim sums menu. Good dim sum in Shanghai is pretty questionable and this is one of the better ones. Not the best but good enough to warrant future visits for dim sum brunch (no oj next time).
Minced shrimp rolled in crispy bean curd skin (RMB¥25 for three)
Fish fillet congee with conpoy (RMB¥36 per bowl)
A little bland.
Phoenix feet in black bean sauce (RMB¥25)
Steamed shrimp ball with sweet corn (RMB¥28 for three)
Steamed shrimp dumpling (RMB¥52 for four)
I usually don’t care for shrimp dumplings but these were good. Yes, my friend already snatched one up before I took this.
Custard buns (RMB¥20 for three)
Haro my little porcupine custard buns! So cute.
Sichuan style dan dan noodles (RMB¥58 per bowl)
Steamed shaomai with conpoy and crab roe (RMB¥42 for four)
Steamed shaomai with truffle (RMB¥50 for four)
Truffle flavor wasn’t too distinct so it did not make a huge difference in the taste.
Pan-fried taro cake (RMB¥25 for three)
Seafood dumpling with matsutake (RMB¥48 per bowl)
Steamed rice noodle with scallop, spinach, and sweet corn (RMB¥42 for three)
Nice big pieces scallops in there.

Steamed beef balls with vegetables (RMB¥18 for three)
Coconut milk red bean pudding (RMB¥18 for three)
