Di Shui Dong is situated in Mao Ming Lu just opposite the Lyceum in the French Concession area of Shanghai. You walk away from Chang Le Lu past a clothing store and you will see a non-descript set of stairs. Walk up the stairs and you will be in the bustling, noisy, cheery restaurant.
The food here is authentic Hunan food. You will find a range of semi-fiery dishes with plenty of chilli flavour.
We like the shredded pigs ears with an undertone of chilli, the sliced pickled vegetables, the Fen Pi (noodles made from yellow beans), the steamed jaio zi (dumplings which are very good indeed) and a strange but appealing dish of spareribs marinated and cooked in cumin seeds.
The service is fast, friendly and efficient and there are a few Westerners here, so the menu has English translations.
