searching for War Su Har

a

Back in the 60's and 70's my family's favorite restaurant was 'Jimmy Dip's on University Boulevard in Fort Worth; our favorite dish there was 'War Su Har'. After searching the internet I have failed to find another Cantonese restaurant that serves this dish. Jimmy Dip's has long since closed. Anyone know of this dish (fried shrimp wrapped in bacon)?

Thanks

    Golden Moon in Weatherford has War Su Har. I have tried it. While it is not quite as good (but very close) as I remember from Jimmy Dips, it is very good. Actually, the restaurant seems to be pretty popular. The waiter told me that they get a number of customers who travel to their location because they remember War Su Har.

          Golden Moon in Weatherford has War Su Har. A close facsimile to Jimmy Dips...not as wonderful as I remember from my childhood, but quite good.
