It’s loud, lurid & kitschy, but Puchong’s new Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park in the Setiawalk complex feels irresistible in its own inimitable fashion.

1 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

This is a warren of restaurants in a setting that’s supposed to evoke the streets of 1930s Shanghai, complete with rickshaws & vintage car replicas.

2 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

The food here feels like a mishmash of Chinese favourites, with numerous shops serving everything from dim sum to bak kut teh, roast duck rice to claypot pork belly noodles.

3 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Siew Mai

The most popular is probably the dim sum tea house. But it’s debatable whether this siew mai is worth the RM7.50 price tag (before taxes), all things considered.

4 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Prawn Rolls

Several items are well-prepared enough to please; we liked the deep-fried prawn rolls with seaweed & shredded bean curd skin (RM8.40), served hot & juicy …

5 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Char Siew Pastries

… though the char siew pastries with spring onions (RM6) tasted like they had been sitting on a counter somewhere for at least 10 minutes too long.

6 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Xiao Loong Bao

Crab meat xiao loong bao (RM12). Sounded more memorable than it turned out to be.

7 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Carrot Pastries

Deep-fried carrot pastry (RM7.20), too bland to recommend.

8 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Glutinous Rice with Chestnuts

Steamed glutinous rice with chestnuts wrapped in lotus leaves (RM7); also could be better.

9 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Custard Buns with Salted Egg Yolk

Still, it’s not all hopeless here; the steamed custard buns with salted egg yolk (RM6.60) were fine …

10 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Dumplings

… while the prawn & pork dumplings with wolfberries & Chinese spinach were entirely edible …

11 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

.. & the fried prawn dumplings were enjoyably executed.

12 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Avocado Rolls

Deep-fried avocado rolls with kataifi (RM9), as near-perfect as any we’ve ever had.

13 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Starch Noodles

Another worthwhile one: Starch noodles with Chinese parsley (RM8). Quite addictive.

14 Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park

Pandan Egg Tarts

Mini egg tarts with pandan paste (RM6) brings this meal to a mediocre close. So ultimately, there are both hits & misses here.
