MELBOURNE | For an authentic taste of modern Shanghai in Melbourne, look no further than New Shanghai. What started out as a humble family business whose desire was to showcase authentic Shanghainese cuisine, has flourished into a burgeoning restaurant empire that now has two Melbourne locations, adding to their numerous other stores interstate and, even, in Shanghai.

Their primary focus is to provide an authentic experience for their customers, as further evidenced by the fact that they only hire dumpling-making chefs that originate from Shanghai. The specific skills and techniques that dumpling chefs acquire and subsequently master is exquisite to watch; an activity that is encouraged by the tall glass windows surrounding the dumpling-making kitchen. With most products made in-house, including their dumplings, buns and noodles, you know you’re in for a culinary treat.

Being the melting pot of crowds that Chadstone is, the New Shanghai outlet here is no exception. On a Sunday, the queue of people out the front of New Shanghai does not falter. With a spacious interior filled with heavy wooden furniture, booth tables and even a private dining room in the back, it is clear that this restaurant is prepared to cater to the numbers, without compromising on quality of experience. Service is extremely professional and friendly.

Overlooking the multi-level shopping centre, the grandiose aesthetics of New Shanghai contributes to its elegance, all whilst retaining a comforting ambience. Perusing through the double-sided A3-sized menu, we are spoilt for choice yet appreciate the layout of different categories on the menu, making it easy to read given its immense variety of dishes.

Signature dishes that you must try include the Xiao Long Bao (whose delicate yet sturdy dumpling skin retains a hot soup within), Pan Fried Pork Buns (with a thicker and more doughy texture, also retaining pork meat and a hot broth) and the Sherpherd’s Purse and Pork Wontons (tasting deliciously addictive coated in a peanut-sesame sauce and chilli oil). Their mains are just as delectable, though fair warning that the food here is quite filling!

Offering drinks that go beyond the standard hot Chinese teas, you can also cool down with their ice blended drinks, mixed teas, beers and mocktails. For something sweet to finish with, their recent collaboration with Luxbite has resulted in the creation of limited edition desserts that are exclusive to New Shanghai, including the cute-looking Chocolate Panda (a chocolate and sesame tart) and visually impressive Sweet Mandarin (looking like a mandarin, but is instead filled with a mandarin mousse, jelly and cream).

Using recipes passed down through generations, the traditional elements in these contemporary dishes give customers an authentic experience that is still somewhat familiar. Accurately depicting the substance of Shanghai culture through the eclectic venue design and buzzing atmosphere, we would highly recommend you visit New Shanghai, if not for the energetic (and, at times, loud) environment, then definitely for the delicious dumplings.
