白灼筍乾+2只茶杯 Smoked-dried Bamboo Shoots Plus Two Cups

120213 Tea Cup 001我上辈子大概是熊猫,这么爱吃笋!

明天要离开上海几天,溜去吃了顶级的白灼笋干。

啊,这么好吃的东西,可惜老外是不会懂的。

发到软软又略带鲜脆的笋干,白灼一下,浇上点葱油和酱油,一点都不咸,完全突出笋干原来的独特风味,跟松露有得一拼。

而且一片有半个巴掌大,爽到不行!

一盘才20多元人民币。呵呵,做天朝子民还是好的。

I was probably a panda in my previous life so there remains the strong love for bamboo shoots. Fresh or dried, pan-fried, salad or soup, no matter how it is prepared, as long as there is bamboo shoots in the menu, I will definitely give it a try. In Europe, when the supply was not that sufficient, I would use artichoke as substitute.

And this dish is definitely one of the top 3 bamboo shoot dishes in Shanghai. Soooooo happy to have it on my last day in Shanghai.

Large bamboo shoots were smoke-dried first, then the chef amazingly brought back the juicy fleshy texture of fresh ones with unique smoke-dried bamboo flavor. The seasoning is minimum with light soya sauce and scallion oil as topping so the bamboo flavor can be 100% savored. The unique strong taste kept reminding me of truffle, except that each slice is of half-palm size!

第一个属于一见钟情。

哑光面的白陶,陶土里揉上带铁砂的陶土,转出如水墨画的雅致纹路,独一无二。

其他的纹路都太多,转的跟花式咖啡一样,没啥意思,就这个让人倾心。

里面是上厚釉的青瓷,有若隐若现的蚯蚓纹。

店家说是“叶正茂”工艺师的作品。

不知道他是谁,也不在乎,我喜欢就好。

I was supposed to buy some tea snacks to bring to US. The shop I intended to go was close for lunch break. Somehow this cup in the neighboring shop caught my eyes.

What can I say? Love at the first sight!

120213 Tea Cup 007

I ended up buying two cups from the same artist Ye Zheng Mao. Certainly the most expensive cups I have ever had – my philosophy has been that I only purchase things at a price range which I can use at ease without even a slightest worry of possibly damaging them.

These patterns were not painted but made by blending different clays before burning so each cup is unique.

The 2nd one I got even came out with this mesmerizing eye or galaxy sign. 

接着又看上一个揉土揉出一个眼的,也很贊。

这个是在店家茶盘上的,已经养了三个月,让我直接给收了。呵呵。
