Hordes show up here for Man-darin and Szechuan cooking—slippery shrimp, garlic eggplant, panfried dumplings, and cold sesame noodles.
Best Shrimp Toast, August 2013
The Bread: Thin slices of supermarket white are cut into triangles and deep fried to a crunch. Sesame seeds complete the hors d'oeuvres.
The Filling:Diced shrimp are whipped into a mousse thickened
with sesame oil and water chestnuts. The recipe is a Yun family secret.
The Sauce: It's classic sweet and sour: ruby red, cornstarch thickened, and on the side.
