Taikang Road or Tianzifang, call it as it pleases you, is packed with international restaurants, most of them offering great venues but average food.
Casa 13, stuck in a small alley, is an exception and got the right mix. The restaurant is housed in a charming townhouse with a cosy bar area on the ground floor and the restaurant spread on the three upper floors.
The lunch deal gets you one starter/one main or one main/one dessert with a glass of wine or soft drink as well as coffee and tea for RMB88.
The food is tasty and well presented and the complimentary bread will give you a great start. The service was discreet but a bit slow, even though we were the only customers.
It was my first time and I will surely not make it my last. Heard their brunch was great – a good reason to go back. Stay tuned!
