When you crave the hot stuffed bao at Shanghai Terrace, at 108 E. Superior St., between Michigan Avenue and Rush Street, get there in a snap with Chicago’s public transportation system. Hop on the CTA Red Line “L” train to the Chicago and State station and you’ll be just four blocks away from the Peninsula Chicago, where the eatery sits on the fourth floor.
Finding the fourth floor can be tricky. Take the elevator to the hotel’s lavish main lobby, which is located on the fifth floor. There, find the wide, carpeted staircase and walk down one flight. Keep your eyes peeled for the little red door on the left, so you don’t miss its inconspicuous entrance. It would be a shame to go all of that way only to miss out on those bao.
