The à la carte menu at Wei Jing Ge at Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund is nothing short of massive. It arrives at your table in a large gray binder with a metal plate on the cover that states the restaurant’s name in English and Chinese. Inside you’ll find the à la carte selections drawn from Cantonese, Shanghainese and Huai Yang dishes broken down by appetizers, soups, bird’s nest, seafood, hot dishes, various meat choices, vegetables, starches and desserts. Yes, it’s a long list and yes, it’s going to take you some time to sift through. Each item is written in both English and Chinese and typically includes the ingredients and cooking method utilized. We suggest you relax and prepare for an evening of dining at the Shanghai restaurant.
