OLD SCHOOL CHINESE (PuPu Platter) IN SAN DIEGO?

Hello everyone: I'm looking or the old school Chinese restaurants in SD. You know the ones with PuPu Platters, strong drinks, greasy food, etc.. I found two-one called Double Happiness in Del Mar and one called Mandarin House on 5th. Has anyone been to these or have other suggestions?
Bali Hai seems like an overpriced tourist trap to me, and I saw that fake polynesian place in the Gaslight today-no thank you.
I'm actually starting a website dedicated to old school Chinese restaurants so any help would be really appreciated.
Off Topic Question: I'm really into street art and I saw some great street art under the Cornado bay bridge. Can anyone tell me where I can find other street art in the city? I don't care about the neighborhood-I'm from Philadelphia which can look like a 3rd world country in some areas so I'm not phased by much. Thanks
I'm a big fan of the drinks at Mandarin House. The food is typical Americanized Chinese stuff. I like the Pupu platter there when you have a small group more focused on drinking and socializing than good food. The other customers aren't always fond of them when someone leaves a piece of meat on the grill and it smokes out the restaurant haha.
King's Garden has several locations in San Diego (Solana Beach and Mira Mesa) that has many "old school" favorites.
