生煎 上海 vs 台北 Shengjian – a tale of 2 cities

我八月去上海時從吃2009吃得津津有味的小楊生煎。吳江路 小吃一條街的風味不再,這回是於五角場的萬達商業廣場裏的分店。價錢是五塊錢四個。我吃過最便宜的是地鐵江蘇路站以南的江蘇路上,兩塊有四個生煎或鍋貼,牛肉包子一塊一個,吃得飽飽的!

然而兩個月後在台北,竟然在師大夜市找到一賣生煎的小檔。口味雖然不及上海小楊的好,價錢也沒那麼便宜,但總算不錯的街頭風味。復興南路二段和信義路交界的南一點有一間賣生煎和高麗菜包的,三個包加豆漿才NTD50元。正野!

Shanghai’s famous for its Shengjian buns. My third séjour at Paris of the East in August 2010 coincided with Shanghai Expo, so one of the more centrally located food street wujianglu got gentrified and the mouth-watering buns are sold in various xiaoyang branches in the city. They are still nicely warpped and juicy and all. The surprise however, came two months later when I visited Taipei and found a vendor at the night market near Taiwan Normal University. It’s more expensive and drier than the counterpart in Shanghai, but very much qualifies as a delicacy in its own right! Check out another joint South of Xinyi Road on Section 2 of Fuxing South Road, along the elevated Metro Taipei. Three piping-hot buns and soy milk came to ONLY NTD50.
