What dish to order at Mei Long Village to get "wine-braised seafood?"

Friends:

I'm going to Mei Long Villlage tonight, and some chowhound posts have recommended getting the "wine-braised" seafood at the restaurant. However, when looking at the only on-line menu I could find tor the restaurant, it wasn't clear to me which dish I would order to get this. Any suggestions on how to order this dish, or other good fish dishes at Mei Long would be greatly appreciated.

TIA -

  1. Ugh, "wine-braised seafood". Don't be fooled.

    That's a bad translation, or rather a translation that generalizes a Shanghainese style of cooking -- i.e., using Huangjiu (or yellow rice wine) to braise dishes.

    It's a Haipai style of Shanghainese cuisine.

    So, if you go to Mei Long Village, to sample a wine braised seafood, try the House Braised Fish Head, or Fish Tail, the Fish Filets in Wine Sauce or really any of the hot braised fish dishes.

    Enjoy.
