Chinese Chicken Salad is there a really great one?

There was this tiny spot in Hollywood many years ago that had been there for decades. It was a the spot for that was frequented by movie stars like Brando, Marilyn Monroe and some of the majors from paramount, etc. This was sorta a hole in the wall but full of charm even the name was funny- Shanghai Noshery
By the time I had the ate there the owner was getting on in age but still made great Chinese food with a California flare. It was said he was the one that really started the "Chinese Chicken Salad".

It was basically chopped and shredded style with cabbage, lettus, green onions, carrots and some crunchy items.. however the best dressing!

Has anyone had something similar here? I have tried so many to but have never some close to this one.
