As a follow-up to my food porn photo essay on Hong Kong, I’d be remiss if I didn’t include these scrumptious photos of the morsels we enjoyed in Shenzhen. From a private dinner in the Futian Shangri-La’s presidential suite (wow) to a personalized multi-course meal at the Shang Garden, the food didn’t suck (see menus below). Eating like this was so decadent, but not so good for my waistline. The only thing I would have preferred was to mix it up with the masses some more and actually eaten off the regular menu at times instead of being cordoned off and not be able to soak in some of the ‘real’ Shenzhen culture.
