Japanese in Shanghai: Haiku

June 24, 2011 in China, Food, Reviews, Travel

I love Japanese food and apparently this high class joint called Haiku is one of the best in Shanghai.

We sat on the atmospheric, dimly lit second floor, which has an almost romantic feel about it.  Sure enough, there seemed to be a lot of dates going on around us.

They don’t have a website, so I can’t recall everything on the giant menu — but what I can remember is that there were a LOT of different sushi rolls.  Several pages of different varieties, the majority of which appear to be fusion-type rolls with a lot of sauces and mixtures of flavours.  They all had names like ‘Motorola’, ‘Caterpillar’, ‘Butterfly’, etc.  Reminded me a lot of Kobe Jones in Sydney at King Street Wharf.

Anyway, let me run through what we ordered.
