Yung Sing on Baldwin - GONE?!

sabbatino Sep 21, 2010 09:53 AM

anyone out there as upset as me about what seems to be the demise of Yung Sing, the ancient hole-in-the-wall dim-sum place on Baldwin. it's been shuttered since last fall.

    I think they are renovating.

      I walked by the other day and the note posted was out of date....something about returning by....? (a date/timing already past). If they were still renovating, they should be updating that note. Does not look promising for Yung Sing fans.

        I went by a few times this past spring & summer. There never was any reno worker. I think Yung Sing is history.

      I walk by it nearly every day and I haven't seen a speck of dust move there since last year. I think it's history.

        Let me give a collective "Nooooooo...!" for everyone. That's some history fading away now...

          This makes me very, very sad. Many a lunch consisted of those $1 buns, back in the day. :(

            Me too. I like the shabby vibe in there and the food was delish.

              That's a shame. I really enjoyed the tofu bun. It was more expensive than the other ones, but made for a healthy and tasty lunch.

          Just a note, traditionally if a Chinese restaurant/store closes its doors, they would post a note saying "temporarily closed for renovations". Similarly, if you want to buy something in a store and they don't carry it, they'll say "we're all out". They don't want to sound TOO negative. :-)

            Guess it's a way to let the realization of reality settle in. : P

              Teep: That's interesting and kinda cute. What if a place was really closed for renovations?...."really temporarily closed....."

                I really liked those tofu buns.

                Anyone know anywhere else I can get something similar?
