ColourSeeSee – 上海本色

Shanghai food is one of my favourite cuisines in the world. It is one of the only things I will wake up early for. I’m always on the hunt for new Shanghainese places, so it was bittersweet for me when I saw that a Shanghai restaurant had taken over Satomi Sushi on Kingsway. As my…
