Pudong Shangri-La, Shanghai offers brunch at four of its restaurants on the weekends. Jade on 36 is the hotel’s 36th-foor upscale French spot and is limited to adults and children over the age of 12. The food is decadent, rich and very French, with an emphasis on buttery sauces. Look for dishes like roasted pigeon breast and braised pigeon legs with dates and a turnip confit, or a soft egg served with button mushrooms, roasted pumpkin foam and Ibérico ham powder.
Yi Café is the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s all-day dining restaurant and is very family-friendly. The brunch buffet spread is extensive, offering almost every conceivable cuisine. There is a dedicated Asian section with authentic tandoori and tikka dishes, Malaysian hawker stall stations, sushi and sashimi, and, of course, plenty of Chinese food. The local fare includes all manner of dim sum, including dumplings that your kids will love. On the Western end, there’s a grill station with fish, red meat and poultry; a pasta station; pizza; a salad bar; a make-your-own-sundae bar; and a cheese board. The Shanghai hotel’s Chinese restaurants, Fook Lam Moon and Gui Hua Lou, also serve delectable dim sum, which includes dumplings, buns and lots of seafood bites.
