Tel: 86 21 3368 9525's insider take:

Brash, bold, and colorful, just like modern Shanghai, David Laris's Yucca evokes elements of a Frida Kahlo dreamscape, a 1960s Latino movie set, and a cosmopolitan lounge. The bites are tasty and fresh, ranging from a piquant tomato salsa to churros with chocolate and a twist on the traditional quesadilla; the Latin cocktails are competent if unspectacular. Perhaps a little contrived but always fun and upbeat, Yucca and its Mexican modernity, live DJ sets, and palpable New Shanghai buzz attract a mixed clientele of party people and casual cocktail sippers.—Gary Bowerman
