China has been growing in its demand for New Zealand venison and, even though there have been obstacles due to the current COVID crisis, it seems that the industry is finding new ways to overcome those challenges and deliver exciting new dining experiences through the Shanghai restaurant scene. The newest restaurant adding their touch on New Zealand Venison is Mr. Willis (http://mrwillis.com.cn/willis/) Mr. Willis is a small Italian restaurant in the centre of Shanghai that specialises in a more gourmet style of dining. And recently, their new venison dish has generated a lot of excitement. The dish is a peppered venison fillet with charred beetroot, purslane, and savoury pomegranate that has been added to their repertoire.
So far, the dish has been promoted on social media and seems to be very popular with Shanghai’s diners as they once again re-acquaint themselves with the restaurants the city has to offer. Another successful chapter of venison featuring in Shanghai’s dining scene.
