My favourite banmian is the scallion oil banmian (葱油拌面），as they put scallion oil, soy sauce, and fried green onions, which make the noodle tasted sweet and savoury at the same time.
Since the price of the crab banmian is quite pricy (cost 45rmb), we only got one plate of it, and we ordered one scallion oil banmian, which cost 25rmb.
The price is quite high compare to the others banmian restaurant. Usually we only need to pay for 10-15rmb for one plate of banmian.
But well, the taste is worth the price after all.
For the crab banmian, it tasted extremely good. The noodle is well cooked, not quite hard and not overcook. The crabs (well excuse my fondness for seafood), is tasted just perfect. However, since the taste is a bit strong, it makes you feel full before you can finish it. But I eventually finished it by myself (hehe, don't blame me, it's almost winter, we need more food to keep us warm).
As for the scallion oil banmian, it actually was exceed our expectation. We didn’t expect it to be that good, but it was. I would say it was the best scallion oil banmian I’ve ever tried in Shanghai.
As the conclusion, I’ll give this banmian place 9/10. I’m obviously will come back again someday (need to save my money first), and yes, I put this as the high recommended restaurant in Shanghai.
