DPD restaurant returning to its Shanghai roots?

Gary Soup | Feb 22, 200511:42 AM     3

I don't know why I always seem to make these discoveries AFTER a long weekend...

I varied my walk to work this morning, passing by DPD at Jackson and Kearny, which seems to have had more lives than any cat. I noticed something was different so I paused for a gander (no, not that kind of gander). It's currently called Yong Ming DPD and gone is the Cantonese-American emphasis (no more Crab Rangoon!) of its last incarnation. The menu is primarily focused on low-end Shanghainese and other northern small plates and snacks. No xiaolong bao, but house-made shui jiao and potstickers ($3 for 10!) are on the menu as are kao fu, savory soy milk soup, cold jellyfish salad and the like. There are some REALLY home-style dishes like sauteed egg and tomato, and chive "omelette," two dishes my wife makes (with apologies) when she's stuck for time or ingredients. There's even the homely beef vermicelli with "oily tofu" [read fried tofu] soup. There's also a smattering of curried dishes and chili dishes.

Has anyone checked it out lately?
