The Lotus Dining team has given us many food comas at every single one of their Sydney eateries and Madame Shanghai isn’t any different. Menu items are served Chinese barbeque style, honouring the traditional street-food of Shanghai—with a modern emphasis. Lamb cutlets with cumin, crispy salt bush and miso butter, and tempura jasmine smoked Fish are just some of the oriental flavours that have us wanting more (oh-so-much more).
With a dumpling frenzy that isn’t going away anytime soon, Madame Shanghai certainly knows what the people of Sydney want. And if it’s cocktails you desire, it’s cocktails you’ll get. Try the Great Imperial, with lemongrass vermouth and spiced lychee. Or the God of Fire, for the more experienced, with charred corn, chilli liqueur and volcano salt. Things are about to get heated!
