In this "Eat Like a Local" video," Arina took a 24-hour food tour of Shanghai.

She started the day at the Mengxi Wet Market and tried qiang bing (scallion flatbread) for breakfast.

Then, she went to time-honored Nanjing Beauty Salon to try a very Chinese-style curly hair style, and went to the popular Wang Jia Sha snack store nearby to taste some of the very local snacks such as ba bao fan (steamed sweetened glutinous rice).

At lunchtime, she went to Qibao old street to have street food, and she returned to downtown Nanjing Road to have crab noodles for dinner.

Let's check it out!
