Just Shanghai Foodie Things

Just Shanghai Foodie Things

In case anyone was wondering, we’ve been having a lot of fun, and eating lots of food since getting back to Shanghai.

I have 2 new obsessions. Bliss/Protein Balls and BonApp.

Before New Zealand, I’ve tried a couple oatmeal based bliss ball recipes and since getting back, I’ve gotten serious. I made Key Lime Pie Coconut bites, Dark Chocolate Chia Protein Balls, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Balls and Passion Fruit Bites. So many more I wanna try, maybe mango ones, or cherry, or lemon vanilla? It’s so fun, like baking but without turning on the oven, which will be great in summer. I was just home for a week (pictures will follow) and I brought back so many ingredients 🙂

My oven hasn’t been abandoned completely. Here is a flourless chocolate cake I baked recently:

I’ve also started writing lots of reviews and posting pictures on BonApp, the restaurant review app I use here (like TripAdvisor, but only for food). I don’t think I’ll become a food influencer soon – sadly – but it’s fun and I’ve found a place to post aaaall of the food pictures I take 🙂

And finally, it was restaurant week again! It started March 14 and I managed to go to 5 places before flying home on March 20. Most of them were repeats from the past 2 restaurant weeks, so I already knew they were going to be great. I got so excited about all the food, and my coming BonApp reviews, I completely neglected to take any people pictures. Oops. Anyway, here is some food:

Boramy, a good friend of ours, also celebrated her birthday 2 weeks ago (during restaurant week!), so we went out for another great dinner and then her party … and then had another birthday dinner a few days later. You can never have too much food when celebrating 🙂
