If you have a problem figuring out what to order from the enormous menu, you could do worse than to start with some of the restaurant's specialties, which are numbered 1 to 10 early in the book — probably skipping the shark-lip casserole and the expensive abalone dishes. The one dish on everyone's table is the Old Alley Pork, apparently named for a Shanghai street-vendor specialty: crocks of gorgeous, burnished chunks of braised pork transformed into pig candy, one piece of which would be sufficient to sustain a small family for a week. You will want an order of the smoked fish, a braised, smoked and fried preparation that likely has made it onto every Eastern Chinese menu in the world, but never this crisp or light. If you're into that sort of thing, the braised chicken feet in abalone sauce are as soft and juicy as a lover's tenderest sighs, and the casserole of crab roe is suave.
