Note: When in Asia, the experience of having a local show you around is irreplaceable. For example, one of my favorite breakfasts in the city: sheng jian bao 生煎包 (pan fried soup dumplings), tian dou jiang 豆浆 (sweet soymilk), and you tiao 油条 (Chinese doughnut) - all in the little alleyway under my grandparents' apartment building in 虹口区 (Hongkou district, where the locals be at). Ever constant, ever cheap, & ever yummy.
