Looking for good, old time Cantonese butterfly shrimp with bacon

butterfly shrimp in my mind should be: a jumbo butterflied shrimp topped with a partially cooked piece of bacon lightly which is then coated with egg. The shrimp is fried and served in a sweet sauce with sliced onions. Thre is a current trend to add orange sauce, chopped nuts or a myriad of veggies to the dish. Some restaurants overcoat the shrimp and bacon with egg. Does anyone know what I am talking about? And, if you do, please let me know where I can find it in the tri state area...preferable Manhatta or Queens
