Shanghai Lunch: SALEYA “Sous le Soleil Exactement”
May 24, 2011 § Leave a comment
On a sunny day there’s hardly better place in Shanghai than Saleya for an al fresco lunch. Time divinely stops there… along with the good atmosphere and authentic generous food comes the pricing, making Saleya the most affordable -if not the only- French restaurant in town. 98RMB for 2 courses, 108 for 3.
When owners Alexandre Daune and Olivier Balanda friendly looks after you, not by favor but by true dedication to their guests, when girls are wearing short in the early days of summer, when rose wine gently smooth your body and mind, then it doesn’t get any better and Saleya is a true haven for the Epicurean.
– Beautiful Provence set up recreated in Shanghai Frenchiest quarter
– Briefing with Owner Olivier Balanda under the sun
– Full piece Camembert Cheese Salad
– Rose wine, recommendation of the house
– Traditional Tabasco spiced Beef Tartar
