Red Wine Shrimp @ Chung Yung many years back....
I used to eat at Chung Yung on 27th St between 6th and 7th Ave back in the 80's and 90's s. They had a dish called red wine shrimp which was like nothing I've had before or since... Anybody have any clues on what else it may be called or anything about this dish? I have no idea what region they specialized in...
You might try Best Fuzhou on Eldridge. Double Dragon (also on Eldridge) is another possibility but their menu is not translated into English. Best Fuzhou's is 50-60% translated.
Best Fuzhou Restaurants: (Note the Best Fuzhou on Forsyth Street has changed hands and is Henan Flavors)

I've never had any problems there but Justin (JFores,) a veteran London and NYC hound did have bad experience there and it wasn't even his first time there. I think they either kicked him out or refused to serve him. And he's a good looking guy! Sometimes it might take couple of visits for people to warm up to you, so they know you are not INS. Another reason why I always tip extravagantly in Chinatown.
