对味精和油的恐惧

酒店的食物有点恐怖。我那盘¥52的干炒牛河是在一滩油里枕着。何况每天早上在酒店吃都腻了。晚餐还是要吃的。还是打车出去了。走了几条街,发现在浦东区近外高桥夏碧路这边没有什么旅客,很local。心想,完了。应该回到昨天浦东另外一边的那间餐厅。

就是一间很普通的菜馆。点了几道熟悉的红烧牛肉面、肉菜云吞、阳春面、葱油面、苏州汤包和扬州炒饭。要求少糖、少油、少盐、别放味精。最后到桌的食物,看起来像样,但统统都含有一摞的味精和盐。汤包的馅更是超咸。哪能吃呀?再饿也吃不下。我们随便扒几口米饭和面条充饥就算了。

说真的,在酒店里煮水泡杯面都比这一餐来得好。至少味精没那么多。再加个燕麦棒或麦片棒,营养充足。我已经这样吃了几餐,挺开心的。再吃多几餐也无所谓。我吃街边摊很少拉肚子,是吃太油腻才会往厕所冲。幸好酒店前有间Lawsons可以买点巧克力饼干之类的零食。这里不是云南,没有淡一点的菜,没有我爱吃的云南佳肴。可能深圳靠海,又近香港,难免餐馆和食客的口味近香港菜肴,也容易找到合口味的食品。但这上海的local口味还真重,又油腻到极点。受不了。😨

Possibly the saddest meal of the trip. Virtually inedible because it was full of salt and MSG.

your last 2 sentences: my sentiments exactly! local food is too 重口味.
but sh being the most cosmopolitan city in china, also has many good restaurants for foreigners.

Yeah, next time we'll stay in town. Unfortunately we weren't anywhere near town for a few nights. We were far far far out. We're one hour from the airport and one hour from town. And that's on a good day without a traffic jam. UGH. The area is completely devoid of restaurants in a 30min radius. Arrrrgh.
