15 warming winter dishes in Shanghai

Pie Society seriously beefy pie

Warm yourself inside out with our favourite comfort food in the city

Seriously beefy pie at Pie Society, 48RMB

Succulent meat and buttery shortcrust pastry – mmm, pie. Thankfully, former pop-up pie purveyors Pie Society have now opened a permanent location and you can indulge in this satisfying combination whenever the craving hits.

The new space is more bright and business-like (i.e. just like a traditional British pie and mash shop) than cosy, but opt for the Seriously Beefy hand-made pie (48RMB) filled with juicy rump steak cooked in Guinness with carrots and mushrooms, and you’ll feel lovely and warm after just a few bites. An extra 14RMB will get you a side of mashed potato or some mushy peas to fill your belly and feed your soul.

Pie Society: 381 fanyu Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu. See full address details.

pie-and-mash

British-style pie and mash shop in Shanghai

Excellent British-style pies on Fanyu/Panyu Lu from drum ‘n’ bass doyenne-turned-pie maker Jane ‘Siesta’ Tan.

The bright and breezy space is made to feel just like a traditional British pie and mash shop and it delivers in the taste stakes too, with creamy mash and authentic mushy peas and gravy to go with your choice of pie. Flavours include Seriously Beefy (Guinness-cooked rump steak), Hen Hao (chicken and mushroom), Shepherd-less (a veggie-friendly mix of lentils, asparagus, wild mushrooms and carrots) and the Premiership (chicken balti curry cooked in Westwood pale ale).

Bangers and mash is available for 55RMB (try the delicious Cumberlands), a single pie is 48RMB and all sides are 12RMB each (in addition to the mash and mushy peas, you can also have steamed veg or a sweet potato mash) and a range of three gravies (and a chutney) are 5RMB each.

Lust: Pie Society’s pies

Meat-pie

Catch the pie and mash pop-up every Sunday in May

By Jake Newby

Better known as DJ Siesta, the promoter behind Shanghai’s biggest drum ‘n’ bass nights, Jane Tan has launched her first foray into the foodie world with British-style pie brand Pie Society. She’ll be selling her wares every Sunday in May as part of her pie and mash pop-up at Daga Cafe – 85RMB gets you a pie, two sides, a topping and a pint. Sides include pork scratchings, mushy peas and, of course, mashed potato.

Tan is currently producing a number of different fillings to go inside her delicious pie crusts including steak and ale, chicken and tarragon, and a cheesy vegetarian offering. We were fortunate enough to get a preview tasting and they were easily some of the best pies we’ve eaten in Shanghai. It ought to be well worth catching her pop-up pie stall this month.

Pie Society is at Daga Cafe every Sunday in May.
