Aiming to take traditional Chinese cuisine and bring about the latest innovations in Asian Fusion, The Chinoise Story or Jin Lu Restaurant, offers a menu that is a fresh and exciting take on Chinese dining even for Asian Fusion restaurant standards. Located in the Jin Jiang hotel, you'd expect Jin Lu to be as aesthetically pleasing as the luxurious hotel that houses this very hip and modern restaurant. The decor is something to behold as it's seemingly never-ending ceilings, all-white color, and minimalist flair help to create a sleek but sophisticated setting for a romantic date or just as easily transition to an ideal business lunch venue. While the contemporary environment is definitely impressive, Jin Lu is both style and substance. The food, while retaining semblances of food you're familiar with, is an exercise is pushing the boundaries of your taste buds and the results are delicious. Some appetizers to look out for are the chicken and melon and the Chinoise Story's Combination which is a sampler of bite-size flavor blasts such as white yam in raspberry sauce and crispy BBQ pork. However, like much of the cuisine in Shanghai, you have to try their renowned fish dishes. Among the highlights is a baked cod with stir-fried egg whites and caramelized vinegar which makes for a symphony of flavors that makes great music once you try it. If you're a foodie, adventurous, or just want to impress a client, The Chinoise Story is a memorable and fantastic dining experience that you won't find anywhere else.
