chinatown - taste good doyers, seafood places?

We revisted Taste Good Doyers (formerly New Taste Good) last weekend at the bottom of Doyers - its a tiny place, as busy as ever, and as good.
One extremely good dish - water spinach with killer shrimp sauce (belacan) two very good, not great - rice noodle with dried fish, etc (#1 on noodle menu) and oyster omelette - very fresh eggs, less impressive oysters - sauce was like a chile-laced duck sauce - I know this is supposed to be a sweet red sauce - not sure this was the "right" one. They were bringing out lots of hainan chicken (NOT the chicken rice, their chicken rice isnt anything great, but their chicken is). Another dish that was good in the past was their braised tofu with pork and dried fish from the specials menu. For a quick tasty meal, this is a good stop.

We had stopped by 27 Sunrise Seafood (Division Street) with a hope of checking it out - as others previously posted, they have probably the most exotic live seafood selection in C-Town - looks like you have the pick of the Brooklyn Aquarium (sorry). However, both it and Fuleen, on the same block were fully booked with big parties so we moved on to Taste Good. After dinner, we walked by the restaurant at the foot of Mott which housed Szechuan Taste for many years and it is a seafood restaraunt now - are there any reports on it? Seem to be many new seafood houses opening up.
