Good new Chinese takeout, uptown Minneapolis (MSP) - "Chinatown"

I've been ordering from a new takeout place at Lagoon & Dupont, by the new CVS. So far I've had a decent rendition of beef-with-vegetables and some good egg rolls, but the really happy surprise has been salt-and-pepper shrimp.

First time I ordered it, it was pretty good... big shell-on shrimp on a bed of onions and peppers. Needed a little salt, but that was easily remedied. Got slightly soggy in the covered takeout container by the time it was delivered. I still wolfed down the whole order.

Got it tonight and it was really excellent. Sufficiently salted, abundantly peppered, and the shrimp had a thin coating on them (reminded me of the lobster-ginger-scallions at Shuang Cheng). The counter person looked surprised when I ordered it. Not a big seller, I guess. It should be.
