Slice, another David Laris creation in town, has got some mixed reviews. Most people feel that it's overpriced for what you get (especially at the dinky Times Square location where one sits in a small corner in the shopping mall). However I had heard more favourable reviews for the Jinqiao branch and it was exciting to be able to try it at long last.

The Jinqiao location can't be more perfect: overlooking the Dulwich rugby pitch, the view from the 2nd patio is refreshingly green, particularly for Shanghai.

Our ice-cold smoothies were perfect for the afternoon. My berry one was very fruity and smooth.

L's Egyptian chicken sandwich. We had no know idea why it was Egyptian but she liked the spices and flavours of the chicken a lot.

L's Caesar salad with prawns was tasty and nicely put together with big slices of shaved Parmesan.

I had a hard time deciding what to have from the rather big sandwich menu and at the end I settled for an open prosciutto cheese melt on sour dough. The sour dough was very hard and I could use more than 1 small piece of gherkin but other than that it was delicious. Very nice prosciutto indeed!

We saved room for dessert totally. We were all gasping with excitement when we saw L's raspberry meringues in a tower. It was so huge she couldn't finish it.

My molten chocolate cake looked less impressive but it was in no way inferior. It was soft and had that melt-in-the-mouth texture. Yum!
Lunch for the 3 of us with 2 coffees came to RMB400. Not bad at all especially with such pleasant surroundings!
