*Yoko is in China for 10 days! And with no access to Facebook or Instagram, she is sending us photos the old school way — via postcards. We’ll be featuring these snapshots from Yoko in Chengdu and Shanghai all week here on the blog. Enjoy! – Kayoko

Breakfast today was at the neighborhood hot spot Fengyu. Hungry eaters line up for the shengjian, a pan-fried bun filled with meat and juices, a Shanghai specialty. The skin is somewhere between an XLB and potsticker, thick all around and crispy on the bottom where it's browned.

After watching the locals I made sure to eat these buns on a ladle, so I wouldn't loose out on the juices.
