Salt and pepper shrimp at Jeng Chi

Have you guys tried this dish at Jeng Chi yet? I never thought their dumpings were a big deal, but for my money, this is the best fried shrimp in all of Dallas.

It's lightly panfried, salt and pepper as the name implies, and dusted liberally in green onions. What's more, they actually fry them already peeled except for a small part by the tail. It's perfect for gripping by the shell and ripping out all shrimp flesh in one bite. I've never understood why restaurants fry with the shell still on. Are you really supposed to eat hard crunchy shell shards in addition to shrimp meat? Ridiculous and yet so common.

Freaking delicious. I usually add soy sauce and that red chili paste condiment as a sauce.

I'm not one to take photos at a restaurant, but I'll try to find a pic.
