For many years I went to Yang Chow in Chinatown in LA and feasted on their signature dish. Slippery shrimp is lightly fried, then covered in a sweet, spicy, lustrous orange sauce. This is probably a common Chinese dish, but I haven't seen it in New York.
Can one of you more knowledgeable foodies tell me if this is a unique dish, or can I get my fix here in New York?
Susan, did you ever find a place in manhattan that serves anything like it? i live for slippery shrimp but can only get it when i'm in LA.
never been to LA and never had Slippery Shrimp, but it looks a lot like what's served at the Chinese-Korean places. Shanghai Mong on 32nd serves something similar looking, but more heavily sauced:
Guh Song in Queens has a dish that looks much closer to Yang Chow's, but I can't find a photo online.
