Old-School Cantonese

Out on Avenue U in Brooklyn is Richard Yee's, an old Chinese restaurant that's a bit of a time warp: pu-pu platters, pagoda-topped bar area, menu items like "volcano pineapple steak," etc.

OK, it's a LOT of a time warp. It's like Sichuan, Hunan, and the like never happened.

I was there recently and found myself getting surprisingly nostalgic. Are there other old-school Cantonese restaurants left in the city? I'd like to put together a list.
