MF member, cocktail expert and bon vivant Rocky Yeh died Sunday at the cruelly young age of 42.We first met as admins which believe me back in the day was a bonding experience. Rocky was always congenial, and great company as I learned when he visited NYC several years ago. He also gave me a very good recipe for ma po tofu.

 

I can't seem to post a link but there's a nice obit up on neatpour.com .

I enjoyed his posts, and wondered what had happened to him. RIP

Wow. Sorry to hear this. We met him several years ago on a trip to Seattle. When we had dinner this summer with a bunch of the Seattle ex-MF people, he couldn’t make it. RIP.

He liked to order, as Don Lee reminisced, the whole menu.

 

RIP, Rocky.

Terrible and sad.

 

We met him a few years ago when we visited the MF Seattle clan. Very funny guy - RIP.

Whoa. I'm so sorry. I never met him in person but really enjoyed his posts.

For some mysterious reason I am having trouble posting links, but there is a nice tribute to Rocky on Eater Seattle should anyone wish to take a look.
