In Shanghai, squishy, soft, homemade cookies are like rare Pokémon, and expats know all too well about cravings for food from home. Luckily, Strictly Cookies rushes to rescue the population from a cookie-less existence! Offering a wide variety of delicious flavors (like chocolate chip, red velvet, peanut butter, cinnamon bun, and exciting monthly specials) Strictly Cookies can be found at trendy cafes or ordered directly from their website at http://www.strictlycookies.com/!
Founded in 2010 by Harvard graduate Lexie Comstock, Strictly Cookies has become an intrinsic part of Shanghai life. Whether you live here or you’re just visiting, be sure to check out their “cookie headquarters” at 1166 Yan An Xi Lu, entrance on Panyu Lu, number 103, from 9am-6pm.
Even better, you can win a sampler cookie box of your own, as well as a free trip for two to Beijing (and much more) by using #UnTourContest or tagging @untourfoodtour to submit your best photo of Chinese food! Visit Untour’s facebook page for more information!
