opinionatedchef | Dec 31, 201108:49 PM

After Shanghai Gate was mentioned in the "Three Fav. Dishes of 2011" thread, I looked it up and found a menu with many surprisingly different items. Do you have favs there and have you tried any of these? thanx much:

A2. Smoked Fish
Marinated and pan fried in Chef's sauce

A8. Wild Veg. and Bean Curd
Fresh wild veg. served with 5 spiced tofu (Is this made w/ fern? I have had fern at Chili Garden in Medford and they call it "wild vegetable"; love it )

A30. Seaweed Fish
Fish fillet with seaweed fried and served with sauce

B6. Crispy Beef
Fried beef slices served with garlic sauce

B7. Beef with Pickled Cabbage (is this like Wok Baked Beef and Hot and Sour Cabbage at Fulloon?)
Stir-fried with spicy cabbage

P4. Pork in Tofu Wrapped (does this have 5 spice flavors?)
Slowly stewed and served with bean sprouts

Mashed taro wrapped with chicken roll (fried)

Sizzling eel plate

Preserved Pork with taro in hot pot (what is preserved pork like? pickled?)
