Lao Sze Chuan's Cabbage

Lao Sze Chuan, sister restaurants to both Lao Shanghai, and Lao Beijing in Chinatown, is known for authentic Sze Chuan cooking, and a menu like an encyclopedia. But before I even got to the menu on a recent trip to the Chinatown institution, we were served this dish of spicy pickled cabbage, dressed with what I think was shrimp paste. It is my new favorite starter (do not worry, I will not call this an amouse bouche) and on its own, is worth a trip down to Chinatown.
