The Secret Balcony In Shanghai

Chonor Cafe


Ha I feel like most of my posts lately have involved eating.. Oh well. When I was in Shanghai I was wandering around The Bund when a little sign caught my eye. Actually it was the fact that is said “Veg” underneath Chonor Cafe that had me curious. While there is a surprising amount of vegetarian options in China I suck at finding them so there was no hesitation climbing up a sketchy wooden staircase to find me some food.

We were greeted by a couple of ladies with big smiles on their face. Aaron and I made our way up some tiny stairs to find the patio not only completely empty, but with a perfect view of The Pearl Orient Tower. It was amazing.

I ordered the friend rice with “ham” and Aaron ordered the masala rice. Mine came with tea or coffee, cookies, a bowl of fruit and a mountain of fried rice. All of this for 68 yuan! It was kind of expensive for China but we were in Shanghai and I got a lot of food so there were no complaints.

I’ll be honest if you’re looking for a fancy meal then this isn’t the place, but if you want some decent food with an amazing view where you can eat and drink and take pictures then this is where to go. Most places charge 70 Yuan for a drink if you want a view of The Bund so I considered myself lucky that this place was so cheap. And the fact that it was vegetarian is all you need to sell a place to me. If you’re in Shanghai I highly recommend you also try Godly, a vegetarian restaurant that has a Michelin rating. Sadly I’m stupid and didn’t try it myself but I wish I had.






How have you guys been? Sorry I haven’t been updating much I thought FOR SURE I would be blogging everyday here but sometimes you just gotta chill right? Add me on snap for updates and smiles! Here’s my Bloglovin and Instagram as well I’d love it if we could be friends <3
