So you say Joe's Shanghai and what comes to mind? I know. But based on early popularity of first beyondishers, it seems that America's favorite dish is soup dumplings, so I have zagged where others zig. Their soup dumplings are very good! So are plenty of other things on the menu. Take for example this fragrant dish. The shredded beef is so plentiful that you actually do not have to eat all the vegetables that add to the bouillabaise of flavor. You can just enjoy the richness of the experience, intensified by the addition of flash-fried jalapenos and, yes, a generous helping of salt. And yet the dish does not taste salty! The beef slivers stay miraculously tender, the oil boasts one of those Chinatown flavors you wish you could identify, and somehow the dish never feels greasy. Joe's Shanghai reminds me of the scene in DINER where a bit character eats the entire left side of the menu? Stay tuned.
