Still mourning Chinatown's Hong Min

Just found this thread, I am pining for Hong Min- but from afar, now living in central Pennsylvania. Just made one of my favorite Hong Min dishes- the shredded boneless chicken (with "preserved vegetables"). Boy, did that ever bring me back. Every time I'm in a Chinese market, I look for cans of the sweet pickled vegetables, only occasionally can I find them and make the dish. Used to go there in the early-mid 80s through about 1998 when I moved away. The mixed seafood chow fun was utterly yummy, with "fish belly" and other marine things, playing off the crispness of the fried bottoms of the noodles which were also wonderfully chewy.
