This week we’re introducing a fairly new addition to the Sherpa’s family. Le Blé D’or was first established in 2004 in Taiwan making it the first private brewery in the region, before opening in Shanghai in 2015.

ble1

Despite being most popular for their draft beers with imported German beer glasses fit for every style of beer, Le Blé D’or also has a vast selection of freshly prepared appetizers, meals, and bar snacks to enjoy. All their dishes are free from MSG using fresh ingredients that are prepared daily.

Seafood Fruit Salad

ble2

Prepared using smoked salmon, squid and shellfish as the key ingredients the seafood’s saltiness is well balanced with the subtle sweetness of apple and kiwi fruit. Tossed with mixed peppers, onion, cherry tomatoes, arugula and a French mustard dressing it’s a fresh start to the summer season.

Cheese & Charcuterie Board

ble3

If you’re just looking for a few delicate nibbles while working your way through the beer menu then their cheese and charcuterie board is a good match. With a selection of cold cuts, cheeses and nuts there’s something for everyone whether you’re enjoying a craft beer or a glass of wine.

Mexican Chicken Quesadilla

ble4

It’s probably the most filling quesadilla we’ve tried with chicken, mixed peppers, onion, jalapenos, black olives, basil and mozzarella packed inside in a lightly toasted tortilla wrap. Served with a spicy salsa to give it an extra kick if you’re looking for a trip to spice town.

Seafood Spaghetti

ble5

With seafood brought in daily, their Seafood Spaghetti is a fresh and filling meal for those less keen on spicy wings and something a bit fancier with their drink. Prepared with squid, shrimp, scallops and clams in a creamy white wine sauce.

Assorted Fried Platter

ble6

If ‘diet’ is not a word found in your vocabulary or just trying to feed a whole team then this assortment isn’t going to disappoint. Choose between pork knuckle or pork ribs and add that to an assortment of chicken drummettes, pork sausage, cheddar pork sausage, shrimp cakes, french fries and sauerkraut, served with a selection of sauces.

Bottled Beer 

ble7

It’s only right that you wash this all down with one of their refreshing bottled beers including their popular Honey Lager. Le Blé D’or also claims to be the first Asian craft beer brewery to have won 5 major “Grand Slam” awards, so head to the venue to enjoy one of their award-winning draft beers and the limited edition Strawberry Ale.

Friday Favourite: Chez JOJO

Ahead of our wine tasting event next week we decided to visit French bistro Chez JOJO and see what they had to offer. When it comes to French cuisine we often think fine dining in elaborate settings, which can sometimes be intimidating to those that just want a casual meal.

chez1

Chez JOJO is in fact a guinguette, a popular and humble eatery mostly found in the rural countryside of France. During the summer months, they become a lively place providing traditional singing, dancing, and drinking creating an exuberant atmosphere.

chez2

Perhaps the Chez JOJO of Shanghai doesn’t have the rural countryside of its French counterpart but it still brings a glow of the country back into the Former French Concession, with a delightful terrace that is perfect for those spring afternoons and summer nights.

chez3

The menu consists of the same traditional French cuisine you might find should you ever visit the Loire Valley in central France. In which case, you may want to start with the classic Foie Gras (goose liver) that comes with the choice of terrine or pan-fried and served with fig chutney.

chez4

Another classic dish that’s not to be missed is the Baked Escargot with garlic-butter sauce.

chez5

Although its a more adventurous choice for some the Beef Tartare is well prepared and tender.

chez6

If you prefer your meat cooked then the Angus Steak (500g) is a perfect choice and enough to share.

chez7

With an extensive wine selection and six wines by the glass, Chez JOJO brings a taste of rural France to the foodies (and winos) of Shanghai. The exquisite food in a rustic setting makes it a comfortable atmosphere for any occasion.

Chez JOJO is now available for delivery through Sherpa’s

Friday Favourite: The BREW

What better way to prepare for the sunny Shanghai days than heading down to a craft brewery with its very own signature beers and spacious beer garden. Located on the first floor of the five-star Kerry Hotel Pudong, Shanghai, The BREW is a lively, contemporary bar with handcrafted beers and cider, as well as some favourite pub dishes, sports on display, and live music.

brew1

We took a trip to The BREW to try out a few of their popular dishes, and it’s only right that we washed it down with some of their home brewed beers created by the resident brewmaster.

Charcoal-Roasted Chicken Wings

brew2

It seemed only right that we started with the alcohol, but of course, nothing accompanies a drink better than a generous portion of chicken wings. Inspired by the tastes of Malaysia this decadent street snack is accompanied with hot dipping sauce making it the perfect match with a cold beer.

Salt & Pepper Squid

brew3

Continuing the trend of great bar snacks, the squid is deep-fried in a light batter before being seasoned with salt and pepper and served with a piquant chilli lime sauce. It was a generous portion with meaty bites of squid, and not too much on the seasoning. Enjoying it in the spring sun might just take you back to that Southeast Asian beach!

The BREW’s Brewery Burger

brew4

It would be criminal to not fill up on one of The BREW’s burgers, so we opted for The BREW’s Brewery Burger. At the heart is a hefty Australian Wagyu beef patty, which is topped with caramelised onions, bacon and a slice of cheddar. There was no preference on how we wanted it cooked but the meat was juicy and it did put a few other Shanghai burgers to shame.

The BREW has its name for a reason and we picked out two favourite beers (of the many) that we tried (and available through Sherpa’s), but it’s worth visiting to try out their full range of seasonal homebrewed beers.

brew5

Pils
Gold Medal Winner, Pilsner Category, 2012 Beerfest Asia                              

Silver Medal Winner, New Zealand International Brewers Award 2012

Brewed with precision and golden straw in colour with a grassy noble hop aroma combined with a toasted malt character, the Pils is very well attenuated. With a moderate alcohol volume (4.9%), it finishes long and dry with a little sweetness, a nice accompaniment to the spicier dishes.

Indian Pale Ale

Bronze Medal Winner, Indian Pale Ale Category, 2012 Beerfest Asia

A classic Pale Ale characterised by intense hop bitterness and moderate alcohol content (5.2%), typical of a classic English Ale, it was the favourite of ours. The deep shade of bronze comes from the flowery hop aromas of ripe stone fruit and is a good match with any one of their burgers or pizza.

The BREW is available for delivery through Sherpa’s
