Bonita:  RicoRico is located not on ground floor, but on upper floors of a new building in Shanghai, so it could be a bit hard to find.  I have been there twice, I found the view is fantastic, for my taste what I have had there was excellent, but some Chinese friends did mention that for their taste, food was expensive (in a way true) and not that good (maybe not used to Spanish (Latin) gastronomic experiences and nothing to spit.

To me, the Carnillada de Cerdo, and the Sofrito stuffed Chicken breast were outstanding dishes, also overheard that the paella, tapas, prown gambas, chorizo, etc were very good from others there.

Both food presentation and service were outstanding in my opinion.  I will return with my eyes closed every time in Shanghai.  It is not cheap, (60 Rmb per cup of wine), but to me well worth the price charged because one it is delicious food, one hell of a view, outstanding presentation and service, what else will I want.  It is a place to go with a special "other" and have an excellent time while enjoying good Latin food abroad.


By the way, in Spanish (Castilian) RicoRico means "delicious delicious" , or good tasting food since it refers to a restaurant.  It does have other meanings in Spanish, like "RichRich", etc.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
