TAPAS EXPERIENCE IN SHANGHAI
Pirata is a tapas restaurant (duh look at the title). it’s located in the french concession area (I think?). The location is as follows:
English address 136 Xinle Lu, near Xiangyang Bei Lu, Xuhui district
Chinese address 徐汇区新乐路136号, 近襄阳北路
Yeah…I don’t maybe it is. I am really bad with my geography and overall general sense of direction. Anyways, make reservations because the last few times I went it was super packed. Thank god my coworker made reservations.
I need to get into this making reservation making business.
So we ordered a lot of tapas dishes suhc as the Egg + salmon + pancake dish (I am sure there is a cooler name for it):
We also go the asparagus and egg dish (really good highly recommend it):
and my favorite! Beef…on….pitas? small pitas? aiya..really need to jot down the names of the food that I eat:
It’s a nice restaurant, although it’s a bit on the smaller end. I think that’s what the atmosphere is really good, since everyone is in close proximity of each other. I guess you can say it’s a bit cozyyy?? hehe.
The bar was also interesting, they had a lot of little toys hanging around. Yeah that was pretty creative. Not really sure how the drinks as I ordered beer only. Not a big fan of Sangria I realized.
we will probably be back pirata!
