Lily's House Recommendations?
I have been to Lily’s House a few times and have ordered the following items from the Shanghainese menu, based on recommendations from earlier posts about Lily’s. I am wondering if there are other dishes that are must-try that I am missing. I have really enjoyed all of these, with the exception of the fish in wine sauce. I think the fish had a mealy texture that turned me off.
Smoked Fish, Shanghai Style
Fish Fillet in Rice Wine Sauce
Shanghai Won Ton Soup
Shanghai Rice Cake with Pork
Black Mushrooms with Bok Choy
Meatballs (I think they are called Lionshead meatballs, or something like that).
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Our favorite things not on your list are:
Pan fried heads-on shrimp appetizer (I don't recall the exact name -- that ought to be enough to order it though)
Sweet rice drop soup for dessert
Also very good:
Fish tails in the master sauce (if you don't mind bones)
Salt and Pepper Squid or S&P Fish
I like the chicken with pine nuts too, but it is subtle
