    You might try it at Mao's Kitchen in Venice and see what you think. I wonder if Mandarin Kitchen on Westwood Blvd. has it?

      They do. Even if not on menu they will make it.

        And the portion is HUGE. Just finished off my order last week by chopping the remaining three shrimp into egg salad - wonderful.

          I too have noticed an extremely generous shrimp "pour" at Mandarin Kitchen...plump, plentiful and palatable. So rare, most Chinese joints really skimp, on the shrimp.

          San Hing, on Palms and Sepulveda. The steam tray food is to be avoided, but food to order can be surprisingly good. They do salt and pepper shrimp (on the specials menu).
