The firecracker shrimp exchanges M80 tails for a tempura coating and chili aioli ($6.99), and custom stir-fry selections (starting at $10.99) pair meats or tofu with more than 10 combinations of ingredients, including the hoisin sauce of the kan shaw, the chili paste of the pud kaprao, and intact water buffalo horns of the Mongolian.
