Teacher Perks

One of Jeff's student's parents recently gave him vouchers for a free "surf and turf" buffet at Zaffraan, a restaurant located on the 49th floor of the Pullman Hotel. We took a friend there last night (fun to be able to treat someone to something so nice!) and were amazed by the view, food, and floor-to-ceiling windows (even in the bathrooms!) The food was a mix of Asian and Western styles and included things as fun as green tea brulee, carrot mouse with smoked ham, Yunnan-style hot pot chicken, mushroom tarts, and chocolate fondue. Our table was right by the window, with a view of the Bund, PuDong, and Xujahui. It was hard to capture it all, so this picture is a little tricky to make out, but if you look closely, you can see the view out the window and the restaurant - and our faces - reflected back. All in all, not a bad teacher appreciation gift!
