Evergreen Shanghai

Jessica | Dec 4, 1998 09:06 AM

Last night a friend and I went to Evergreen Shanghai
(63 Mott St.), which was reviewed by Asimov recently
and was mentioned earlier on this board. Ooh, it was
good! We had the steamed buns (soup dumplings) with
crab and pork - the broth insde was really rich and
flavorful and yummy. Then we had the yellowfish (cut
in chunks) wrapped in bean curd skins and fried - so
tasty - the wrapping is crispy at first and then gets
somewhat more pliant. We also ordered the braised
Shanghai noodles, with julienned veggies, shrimp,
chicken, and a very soupy pale sauce. That was good,
too. The family next to us was eating a dish that
looked great, all green and white; I thought it was
noodles, but the woman told me it was actually bean
curd skins. Everthing around us looked good, in fact.
the waiter was very nice, too, although we did have to
plead (basically) for orange slices. A minor point.
