As our quest for a good Vietnamese restaurant in Shanghai continues, we went to FCC for a quick fix. Although not the best (and pricey for what you get!) we find it's as good as it gets in Shanghai.
Beef banh hoi (rmb48). Beef was fried in lemon grass and it was delicious.Vermicelli spring rolls (RMb45), stuffed with pork and coriander. Fresh and crunchy and they are sinfully good.
Beef satay (RMB48). Meat was a little overcooked and chewy.
Sour and spicy seafood pho (RMB55). Very disappointing. The soup was neither sour nor spicy. In fact it was very bland and the few bits of seafood were very ordinary.
Shrimp mousse skewer (RMB30). Tasted what it should taste like but we thought it's expensive!We also ordered a beef pho (RMB48) and it was a let-down. The noodles were uncooked - twice in a week. Unforgivable!
