M Food Talk & UnTour Shanghai

If you’re a foodie in Shanghai and are looking for interesting events, M on the Bund has an ongoing series of food and wine talks, as well as a range of historical and musical events. You can find the whole range of events here: http://www.m-restaurantgroup.com/mbund/Upcoming-events.html
