Just as I love a multifunctional outfit, I’m fond of one-stop-shops too! Hunter Gatherer on the popular AnFu Road in Shanghai is a produce market, specialty foods store, and restaurant all rolled into one (with a delicious bakery section to boot!) They specialize in organic produce and farm-to-table food with no chemicals, straight from their own farm. Every time I come here, I get excited about what new add-on they have for me to pick. You feel like a kid in a candy store, but in reality you’re an adult in a healthy salad store. Need I say more?
I built a protein bowl with goji berry five-grain rice, citrus kale, oven-roasted chicken, and seasonal veggies. Add on a side of smoked salmon pesto pasta and Carolina Honey Tea for a small chunk of change, and you’ve scored a wholesome feel-good lunch. For a sweet ending, try their butter pecan brownie. Afterwards, a stroll through the French Concession is the best way to see the quaint shops and sights in this lovely neighborhood.
