The new year has barely begun, but we’ve already got news of the first closure in 2011. Feng Jianwen, proprietor of the well-loved Yunnan restaurant, Southern Barbarian, has written in to inform us of the sad news that his Pudong location has been closed down “due to a dispute with the landlord”. We’ve all got our own evil Shanghai landlord story to tell but one can only imagine the nightmare that he went through — Southern Barbarian’s Lujiazui outlet has been around for only half a year. Well, the good news is that the restaurant is still alive and kicking on Maoming Road in Puxi. Those of you in Pudong will now have to travel a little further to get your goat cheese fix, but hey, it’s worth the trek and you know it.
