Shanghai Zhujiajiao Water Town: another puppy and wontons

After meeting Xiao Hui (Little Gray), we walked around Zhujiajiao Water Town taking in the scenic views of the water and traditional architecture.

While slowly walking down one street, I suddenly stopped. I had seen something beautiful.

Meet Xiao Bai (Little White)!

Of course we had to go in and eat lunch at the restaurant he was in as an excuse to play with him. We didn’t even look at the menu but immediately asked for a table because we were so taken by this wonderful puppy. In hindsight, having a cute dog is a great marketing tactic for a store.

Xiao Bai was super cuddly and sweet. Awwwwwww.

We ordered well-presented bowls of wontons and curry.

Xiao Bai was also interested in the food.

We only fed Xiao Bai a small crumb of ground meat, but the owner could immediately tell that we had fed him because he looked bloated. She said that everyone liked to feed him and he would get fat. I wish people would give me food just because I looked cute, haha.

When we weren’t fighting over who got to hold Xiao Bai, we took in the sights. Our table (on the right side of the below image) was on the second floor balcony so we could see the surrounding water town and enjoy the weather.

The restaurant had a charmingly decorated interior and was very clean.

It was really hard saying goodbye to Xiao Bai but we still had a lot of Zhujiajiao Water Town to see. My next posts will be about street scenes and street eats!

    Oh yes we recall the water towns. Wuzhen and Zhou Zhuang used to be places we bring guests to. They are wonderful to spend the weekend!

      I wish I had gone back a few times! If only they were easier to get to.

        Yeah that’s the challenge to get there on your own. If we can, we’d drive, but we are loathe to do it because its like the drivers are trying to run you over! lol
