What happened to the avocado dish at Yank Sing?

Bay Gelldawg | Feb 20, 2011 02:07 PM

Went to Yank Sing this morning for the first time in years. Still a great experience. When I asked for the avocado dish, the server smiled and said that they did not have it.

She seemed to laugh a little, in a nice way, which made me think perhaps I had reminded her of something they stopped making a long time ago.

It was one of the dishes that made them famous for fusing dim sum with California Cuisine. Frequently featured in news stories, it seemed like their signature dish.

Does anyone know if/when/why they stopped making it?

I remember it as half an avocado filled with chicken and topped with cheese and then put under a broiler. I could be way off on the ingredients, so I guess part of this post is to ask for help remembering what this item was to begin with.
