Thanks to the variety of restaurants, you won’t go hungry at Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai. The sprawling waterfront Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel houses three main restaurants, ranging in cuisine and style from Asian and European fare in a bright, airy setting to an all-day dining spot with a show kitchen. Grab a contemporary French meal at Fifty 8° Grill helmed by famous chef Richard Ekkebus, where the light-filled space overlooks some of the hotel’s green spaces and boasts an impressive 250-label wine list. Head to Yong Yi Ting for Jiang Nan cuisine (meaning south of the Yangtze) helmed by local Shanghainese chef Tony Lu, or opt for a more causal option with Zest, the unique display kitchen setting where you can actually witness the chefs preparing the food for the day. Of course, the iconic Mandarin Cake Shop makes an appearance at the Shanghai hotel as well, where you can sit down for a delectable pastry or chocolate carefully created by executive pastry chef Thierry Metee.
