JINGTHEORY on Fresh Off the Boat Shanghai Episode

I had the pleasure of taking the human panda Eddie Huang around Shanghai when he was here in the summer. The result is in the latest Fresh Off the Boat episode, in which we sample #veryrare marsupial poop and I host a hongshaorou cook off between Eddie and Shanghainese chef and a dear friend of mine Anthony Zhao.

Now hongshaorou is the ultimate Chinese smackdown dish, and both chefs produced their own unique versions, Anthony’s more traditional Shanghai style and Eddie’s a fiery Hunan version. Who reigned supreme?

Watch the vid to find out.
