Getting desperate for 50's Chinese food!

Far East, Sankoro, Tin Sing, New Formosa is there anything left? I tried Paul's Kitchen on San Pedro and was VERY disappointed. Does anyone remember Sankoro on First St? You could see City Hall from the upper window and it was the tallest building in LA, so that gives you an idea of the time I'm looking at, mid to late 1950's.

I am willing to travel for the old school standards of pakkai, almond duck and a big fatty patty of homyu (NOT the fishy kind).

All leads would be appreciated!
