(Menu - San Francisco) Kuo Wah Cafe.

4 pp. Black and red ink printed on green paper, with rear cover doubling as a postcard (for which it was used). San Francisco: 1957. 

Kuo Wah was a famous Chinatown destination, with numerous variations on chow mein, won ton, boiled noodles, family dinners, and special dinners. a few pencil notes from the family who dined there on June 29, 1957, along with their critique ("delicious") in postcard text on rear. Mild rubbing, minor paper loss to lower rear cover, else very good. Charming and iconic.
