Lynn Shanghai is hidden away on Castlereagh street and is conveniently located and affordable venue to get your Shanghainese food fix.
The menu is fairly extensive, with the usual offerings such as noodles and dumplings.
Baked sesame pockets with minced chicken, vegetables and pinenuts
Loved this dish with the crispy sesame pockets. You simply grab a pocket and spoon in the delicious filling, as much or as little as you want. I tend to overfill mine! Luckily, the pockets are wide open and very easy to fill up.
Shanghai style stir fried noodles with shredded pork and vegetables
These are my staple noodle order whenever I go to a Shanghainese place - they never fail to disappoint!
Sauteed garden beans, bamboo shoots and pork mince
Another one of my favourite dishes and a nice way to sneak some vegetables in.
Dan dan noodles
Soy bean milk
Lynn Shanghai also does a range of dessert, including some cute panda buns to rival the piggy buns at Chef's Gallery.
Deep fried ice cream
Steamed pumpkin, pastry dumplings filled with lotus paste
Not a bad choice for some decent Shanghainese food in the city when you don't feel like queuing up at some of the busier places.
