I had this dish at Shanghai Tang in Xintiandi this past April as part of a large Chinese banquet dinner, and have never been able to forget its taste and texture, both of which blew me away. Easily one of the best things I’ve eaten all year! The problem was, no one was able to tell me what the dish was, not even the restaurant staff. So after six months, just as I’d given up hope on ever identifying the ingredients, my ever-intrepid friend Snowing went back to the restaurant, found the chef and figured out what it was: a seasonal dish of Gorgon fruit from Suzhou (only available fresh for a short period of time) sauteed with diced cuttlefish, kale stems and wood ear mushrooms! I’ve already noted this on my calendar for April 2018 as I want to go back and eat it again.
I just became vegan (2 days ago) and was wondering if you had any advice or anything??
