Article focuses on the cultural and historical aspects more than the food itself. Last Chowhound report from here wasn't pretty, and this was confirmed by one of my scouts quite recently. But the place is an institution and I hope this gives it a boost.

    Cool article - interesting how Chinatown has migrated a wee bit. Sounds like a fun place to try out.

            That brown gravy is pretty much whatever you want it to be. A common way is to mix some oyster sauce, soy sauce, corn starch, and water together. If you want to get fancy, you can add some cooking wine.

            Thanks for the article. I have been meaning to make it down there, and maybe it'll be next week. I noticed they mentioned First Chinese Congressional Church, which has moved out to El Monte now. Cool article.
