Whenever I am lazy to cook lunch and decide to order a Chinese takeout or to go, I always get Kung Pao Shrimp. Kung Pao Shrimp is my favorite lunch special item on Chinese restaurant menu, I just love the wonderful taste of the dish and the fresh, bouncy, and succulent shrimp, which goes so well with steamed rice.
