Happy Cinco de Mayo, friends! Are you ready to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage in style?

Contrary to popular belief, Cinco de Mayo isn’t Mexican Independence Day (September 16). The May 5th celebration actually commemorates the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III in 1862, at the Battle of Puebla.

Now that we got the history right, let’s take a look at what’s happening in Shanghai tonight. Hey, busting out rhymes already!

Homeslice

Keeping the dough rolling, Homeslice has launched a VLE (very limited edition) Mexican pizza in honour of Cinco de Mayo. See the ingredients above? We’re expecting Sherpa’s shifus to make record-breaking trips to Found this Saturday. There’s also a wicked combo for those partying in the hood: slice + tequila shot for ¥45. Oh boy…

luchador cindo de mayo

El Santo & El Luchador 

While you’re at it, check out El Santo next door (or venture out further to Yongkang Lu). The Mexican hotspot is going all out with awesome taco deals, tequila by the bucket, a live Mariachi band and Latin dancers. Frozen margaritas for ¥25?!

cinco de drinko

Bordertown

We’re stoked about Bordertown’s all-day party with awesome free-flow deals and a DIY taco bar featuring both classic fillings and healthier fixings. For ¥100 per person, the event will surely live up to its name – Cinco de Drinko!

Pistolera

One of our favourite casual eateries Pistolera (Jinqiao location) is organizing a family-friendly Cinco de Mayo festival where fun stuff isn’t limited to kids only. Expect cooking classes and piñata kicking, Mexican street snacks and ice cold Corona buckets.

cantina agave cinco

Cantina Agave

The busy corner of Changle Lu and Fumin Lu is bound to get even crazier as Cantina Agave welcomes all with top quality bites and sips for great prices. Entertainment is provided by a DJ and face painters, so dress up in your best Cinco de Mayo outfit and take your party over there!

mayita cinco

Mayita

Shake hips to live beats from Shirley Maria and the band while sipping on Mayita’s brunch-famous margaritas. A firm favourite from last year, this popular event has limited tickets, so make sure to call ahead to guarantee your entry.

Cheers and have a great one!

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! Whether you’re in a relationship or single, you deserve to be treated with something special today. Instead of getting caught up in reservations or even worse – waiting patiently in line at a crowded restaurant – why don’t you split a romantic meal with your loved one at home? The following tips are guaranteed to earn you some serious brownie points:

♥ Create a playlist. We love Khruangbin, Tom Misch and Kali Uchis for this occasion.

♥ Set the table. Plate up your takeaway – it makes such a difference.

♥ Light some candles. The more the merrier.

♥ Get flowers for your boo.

♥ Order Thai food from Sherpa’s – it’s full of natural aphrodisiacs.

Spicy and sensual, Thai food makes for the ultimate Valentine’s dinner. With this in mind, Urban Thai has designed an eight-course set that includes a bottle of sparkling wine for ¥488. Too good to be true, right?! Check out the menu below.

The American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai hosted the 16th Annual Appreciation Dinner on December 7 to celebrate another year of joint accomplishments with over 300 guests from the U.S. Embassy, Chinese government ministries and organizations, and the American business community.

Sherpa’s was proud to be the Stars Sponsor of the event, so let us give you a sneak peek from the memorable night in Pudong Shangri-La. Like all guests in the hopes of being invited back would do, we brought wine. 250 bottles to be precise!

We listened carefully to the U.S. Ambassador Terry Branstad’s remarks about the importance of this bilateral relationship. After updating our WeChat Moments, of course.

Roasted US Beef Steak was served on this special occasion. It was big and juicy and would have made any American chef proud!

Sherpa’s would like to express gratitude to our host and long-time partner AmCham Shanghai. Thank you for having us at the 16th Annual Appreciation Dinner. It was both business and pleasure. See you next year!

THANK YOU for joining us at Tastebuds Food Festival last Saturday! We’re still in a slight daze from all the eating and drinking. A weekend done right, do you agree?

Warm hugs to our partner restaurants that made the effort to set up shop at 800 Show and feed the hungry guests. We saw some pretty content faces sampling everything from Artichoke Pizza to Sichuan Pepper Mules. What was your favourite festival bite – let us know in the comments!

Presenting the best of Tastebuds 2017:
