Elements Fresh Restaurant in Shanghai, China

This past Sunday we decided to venture out and explore a different area of Shanghai. The Xin Tian Di area of Shanghai is quite an affluent type of neighborhood with great eateries, bars, and quaint shops to tempt any shopper. This area is filled with a variety of great ethnic restaurants, our choice for this trip was Elements Fresh.

Elements Fresh had an eclectic array of dinner choices. The menu’s were inviting and informative and prices were very reasonable. We decided to try a variety of dishes. Monica had the buttermilk pancakes & fruit. The pancakes were tasty and fluffy and the serving size was more than plenty for one person. Mari had the 3 Egg breakfast platter. The eggs were just as she likes them, airy and fluffy with just the right amount of salt. White & sweet potato cubes with fresh fruit accompanied her meal. Again, this was more than plenty for one person and delicious she says! Mike had the Tuscan White Bean Soup with Pesto and a Greek Lamb Kebab wrap. I didn’t have to ask if he enjoyed the meal or what he thought of it as he looked like he was enjoying his meal very much. The Tuscan White Bean Soup was divine. I had the Vietnamese Noodles with Shrimp and Hot & Sour soup. This was the best Hot & Sour soup I’ve ever had. The Vietnamese Noodles and Shrimp was delicious as well. The noodles were tossed in just the right amount of spice that enabled me to taste the other vegetables stirred in.

Overall we gave this restaurant 7 thumbs up (7 out of 8). Worth the trip in to Shanghai and a restaurant that was enjoyed by the whole family.

The missing thumbs up: The shrimp had the tails left on it and when I ordered a Coke Zero they brought me the bottle unopened. A fountain soda would have been so much better with the meal. The orange juice was not brought to us until after the meal had started.  A few minor things; but, not enough to influence the delicious meal we enjoyed!

This meal was made with homemade coconut-chili sauce stir fried with shrimp and rice noodles. Garnished with roasted peanuts, fresh bean sprouts, cilantro, and a wedge of lime. Delicious!

Juicy chunks of lamb fillet cooked over an open fire, topped with goat cheese, a tomato-cucumber-roast onion mix, lettuce, finished with lemon juice, fresh oregano and miso-yogurt dressing, rolled up in laffa bread. We've never had a wrap quite as delicious as this one. Very tasty!

  1. A bargain and tasty heh? We love goat and lamb dishes. We like to try any dish that serves either one and on this occasion we were pleasantly surprised. It was delicious. Here in China there are a variety of dishes that I had never heard of before. We’ve tried some and some have been great. I’ve written a couple down to try back in the states just for comparison. We recently discovered our taste buds and pallets really enjoy Hunan dishes. Those little red peppers are the hottest I’ve ever tasted. It’s fire to chew but leaves you craving for more!
