sing wu - pork with szechuan hot cabbage

Does anyone remember a chinese place called Sing Wu (I think it was on 2nd ave and 9th st in manhattan)? It's been closed for many years, and while I suppose it was generic middle of the road american-chinese, it was my first experience of chinese food as a child. They had a dish called "pork with szechuan hot cabbage" that I loved and still crave sometimes. It was simply shredded pork, shredded bamboo shoots and some slivers of a szechuan preserved vegetable (forget the name of it, you can buy it canned and I think it's related to kohlrabi or turnip, preserved in chili pepper). Does this sound familiar to anyone? It's very salty and a tiny bit spicy, and I miss it! Please let me know if you know where to get it...have found it once or twice, but it was super oily...still, would settle for that if necessary, to relieve the childhood craving!
