Chicken & waffles, salmon & cream cheese, dark chocolate & chili – the usual suspects on our plates. We love classic food combinations, but it’s also fun to step out of the comfort zone once in a while. Uninspired about what to eat next on a grey Tuesday, your editor digs deep into Reddit to highlight some of the best “weird” flavor pairings out there. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!

Shanghai isn’t exactly the winter wonderland that you’ve always dreamed of, with weather just about as consistent as your VPN. However, one thing that’s for sure is that it’s cold and for that reason we’ve decided to provide you with a list of 5 foods that will fill you up and warm those weary bones of yours.

1. Dumplings

No brainer, really. It’s probably one of the first Chinese dishes you had here and it’s popular especially in the winter for a reason. You can always count on a plate of steaming jiaozi to warm you up and challenge your chopstick-handling skills. Dunk a few of those in a nice mix of lajiao with vinegar and you’ll thaw out pretty fast.

2. Borscht

If it’s good enough to warm the heart of Putin then it’s got to work for you! This Ukrainian babushka classic is sure to take the edge off any chilly day. Get a solid helping of veggies from this beetroot soup and top it off with a massive dollop of sour cream and dill.

3. Nachos

This masterpiece of a dish needs no introduction. A beautiful mosaic of toppings and layers upon layers of cheese. Fresh out of the oven, a good batch of nachos will bring the heat of Mexico to your table (or couch more realistically). Add jalapenos for aesthetic purposes and a spicy kick.

4. Goulash

The pride of Hungary. You’ll often encounter a broad range of variations of this dish but no matter what goulash will keep you toasty and leave you stuffed. Stew and winter go hand in hand.

5. Hot Pot

Not just a meal, also a fun activity. Throw whatever will fit into a fiery broth and you’ll quickly forget that it’s cold outside. Make hot pot a social activity by inviting some friends and playing a bit of roulette with some questionable ingredients. You may spend some time on the toilet but at least you’re not freezing anymore.

Honourable mentions:

Chicken Noodle Soup, Butter Chicken, Poutine, Plov.

Don’t let this winter get you down, incorporate some of these dishes and you’ll learn to love the season. For best results wash it all down with hot chocolate or perhaps some mulled wine!

Remember the days when most pizzas you ordered here in China were topped with corn, or came with the sort of cheese that could have glued your broken shoe soles together? Luckily, we’ve come a long way. Finding a decent slice isn’t a problem anymore as hundreds of Shanghai restaurants are working up a sweat to get the “best pizza in town” award under their belt.

Serving up generous portions of New York-style pizza, Homeslice has quickly become a staple on our menus since opening last year. Their mission is simple: to make the best pies with quality ingredients and no-fuss methods. Think cheesy, saucy, greasy slices served on paper plates that you have to fold when eating: a classic street food experience in Gotham City.

Since we’re big fans of Homeslice at Sherpa’s (just like you), we’ve joined forces to bring you an epic Year End Pizza Party Special: Buy 2 Get 1 Free! That’s right, the only love triangle you want now comes with an even better price tag. And when Kendrick raps about pizza, you know it’s serious business: “That pizza better not be wasted, you eat it all.”

We decided to go all out with this collab – you can enjoy the discount for a FULL MONTH. Now is the ideal time to get your friends/family/colleagues together for a 🍕 feast!
