THE COPA COFFEE HOUSE - SHANGHAI, CHINA
COPA COFFEE HOUSE
Me and Mad Dog were walking down the street near the Westin Bund Center. We saw a sign that said "bar" so we walked on over. Upon further examination of the sign it read "coffee bar". Laughing out loud we walked in and found warm beer and some good wine from Chile. The staff spoke little english. there were four male coffee tenders and a few waitresses. Me and Dog were the only customers so we enjoyed great service. We attempted to communicate but there was very little english spoken among the staff. We did get a piece of paper with the name and address of the worlds best dumplings restaurant written in chinese. We handed the note to a cab driver and ended up in dumpling heaven. We tipped the four boys heavily because they stood at attention behind the bar for over an hour. We returned the next day to have lunch and thank them for the dumpling restaurant tip. Again it was difficult to communicate but we had a great time. They make a great club sandwich here. They add an egg to the standard version.
