21st Century Shrimp with Lobster Sauce

The other night I had a craving for Chinese takeout. Growing up in Connecticut way too long ago, I remembered Sunday night Chinese which always included shrimp with lobster sauce. I'm sure you all know - no lobster in the sauce, but sauce that also went with "lobster cantonese"..very tasty, included ground pork and other stuff. So I called up the nearest place (don't want to mention its name, but its name is the same as the "rock star formerly known as..." on Ventura Blvd. in Encino) and ordered it. Brought it home, opened it up, and looked at some sauteed shrimp with snow pea pods, red bell peppers, in a lemon sauce. I called them up, and said - hey, this is not shrimp in lobster sauce. To which I heard - well, we have a new chef, and this is the way he makes it.

I will forego a small claims action if anyone can recommend a place (Valley or Westside) that makes it right. Thanks.
