Fried Shrimp Heads?

Does anywhere in Manhattan have fried shrimp heads on the menu? I have heard at EN you can ask for them, but they are not on the menu. I have been having a craving, a strange one, I know... Donguri sometimes has the small, little fried shrimp (not sure what they are called) and that would do, although I prefer the larger heads...Any suggestions?

    1. besides thai and japanese and most asian places, the only american-esque place i can think of is the salt-crusted shrimp at mary's fish camp. i had them the other night actually...they should be a bit more fried if one is to eat the head but they were tasty.

      1. Try Mara's Home made. Very casual, fun. I know they have crawfish heads to suck, but you should call to see if they have shrimp heads. Seems like if they have the one they should have the other.

          1. Salt and pepper (whole) shrimp is a classic Chinese dish. I would imagine, any Shanghai-style restaurant would have it. All it needs is fresh shrimp and a hot wok. Not so sure about shrimp heads: never had a stir-fry shrimp head alone: other people may have a different experience
