Whether you go to Shanghai Terrace for lunch or dinner, the price range for a meal is pretty reasonable at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant. Just for the record, it all depends on how hungry you are. Lunch appetizers — think delicious shrimp spring rolls and seared pork dumplings — hover around the $10 mark. Follow that up with a traditional Shanghainese entrée, such as Kung Pao chicken, and you’ve got yourself a $30 lunch. Tack on a Ning Sling — The Peninsula’s signature cocktail — and lunch cashes in around $40 a person.
As it goes, dinner is a little more expensive than lunch at Shanghai Terrace. We love to stuff ourselves with an array of dim sum (try the green leaves shrimp dumpling), which are around $10 each. After we’ve whet our palate, dinner continues with a delicious entrée. Whether it’s seafood, chicken, duck or steak, expect to pay around $50 a person for a traditional Shanghainese dinner at this Chicago restaurant.
Lunch appetizers such as the barbecue pork bun and shrimp spring rolls range from $8 to $12, while entrées, such as our Peking duck salad and Kung Pao chicken range from $14 to $25. Our dinner appetizers range from $10 to $32 and feature dishes such as golden shrimp, baked abalone puffs, soups and over 13 different types of dim sum. Our entrées range from $16 to $64 and feature a variety of fish, seafood, meat, poultry, monk, abalone and Peking duck. Dishes can be enjoyed both inside and outside during the summer months, and we’re open Monday through Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.
