Guide for Authentic Noodle Restaurants in Shanghai
It’s been 25 years since the first Yakitori Fukuchan opened in Shanghai.


Chinese Cold Noodles—Yakitori Fukuchan




It’s been 25 years since the first Yakitori Fukuchan opened in Shanghai. Although there are now branches but I still prefer the one on Changle Rd. The storefront is not so big that people may easily pass over it, but it is the image of the “Midnight Canteen” in my heart.




The Chinese Cold Noodle is actually a combination of Japanese noodle and Shanghai Noodle.



The semi-transparent looking soba noodle mixed with the sweet and sour sauce tastes cool, and is delightful to eat in the sticky summer. You can also mix them with wasabi for multi-layered taste. Crispy grilled chicken skin is another must eat, the stretched then grilled kind. 



Address: 233 Changle Rd (Near South Shaanxi Rd)


Scallion Noodles— Great Times Cate Noodle House



Folks who grew up in Shanghai should probably know “Langcang Pavilion”, but the restaurant I want to introduce today is “Great Times Cate Noodle House”, a noodle shop with a sign in their storefront written “Served by Langcang Pavilion Mr. Lu”. It is a restaurant that has been opened for more than 20 years, located in a small route near South Huangpi Rd in Xintiandi.




I ordered Scallion Noodles with fish-flavored pork topping. The price is pretty fair. I sit in a spot facing the kitchen, seeing people preparing noodles and toppings. There’s not many people, I can even hear auntie’s conversation in the kitchen.





Their scallion noodles won’t tangle together and is easy to blend. The fish-flavored pork topping tastes different than what I thought for they kept the scallion flavor in it.



Address: 618 South Huangpi Rd



Plain Noodles—Yiguihe Plain Noodle Restaurant





The façade, the white brick wall, and the red poster, all create a retro feeling. It was opened by the boss of the spicy pork noodles in the past. The place is so popular that by the time I went there the shop is already full of people. The noodles served there is chewy, and there is a retail window at the door. I think many people will buy another bag when they finish eating.




The great thing about plain noodle isn’t its toppings, but its soup stock, lard and the noodle itself.



Address: 290 Anji Rd


Sesame Sauce Noodles—Weixiangzhai



"Addiction" in Shanghai dialect is “thinking”, is wanting and craving for something soon as you think about it. Uncle Tongzhuo lives right across the street. Their noodles were 1.2rmb per bowl years ago. With more than 50 years of noodle cooking experience, he is truly one “noodle magician”.



Sesame noodles and beef soup must be the standard combination in the store. Because the noodle is dry, so the beef soup would be the best mate for it. The soup has lots of beef and is stewed in a cauldron for 4-5 hours. By only adding curry powder and scallion and ginger, you can still recall the taste of childhood.



Address: 14 Yandang Rd (Near Middle Huaihai Rd)



Intestine Noodles—Xinle Soup Noodle Restaurant



There is a bunch of restaurants where you can have intestine noodles, but Xinle Soup Noodle Restaurant is the best. It has a lot of branches and the interior has been renovated, but the taste is exactly the same as 30 years ago.



When I first entered the store, I suddenly found a big plaque with the words "Shanghai No. 1 Intestine."



The intestine was handled very cleanly, with a thick red soy sauce and salty sweetness; the large intestine was not crispy, but still is chewy without odor.



The pork chops wrapped in fried golden brown bread are more Japanese-style. The surprise is that the sauce is not a Japanese-style mayo but a traditional Shanghai spicy sauce.


Address: 120 Jinxian Rd.
