    chang2301's Note:

    The Shanghai Style Vegetable Rice originally was just the dish for low paid male workers around the Shanghai area. Wife at home used the left over Pak Choi, add some oil and combined with the rice, to make the traditional vegetable rice for their hard working husband. Gradually, this dish is widely spread and become one of the signature dish in Shanghai Cuisine. The dish is very simple and delicious. You can also use your own creativity to make the one and only Shanghai Vegetable Rice.
