shanghai taste delight / crab with silk gourd

My wife and I just ate at Shanghai Taste Delight, in Mtn View. We stumbled upon the "crab meat and silk gourd" (xie rou si gua) on the daily specials Secret Menu, and what a find! The silk gourd was amazingly tender & sweet. I don't know if the crab was local dungeness or something out of a can, but that's beside the point: it was an amazingly simple and tasty dish.

I've always been a fan of Shanghai Taste Delight. The staff is consistently friendly, and there's something about the space which fools a person into thinking they're dining in a little mom'n'pop restaurant somewhere in China.
