8 pp. printed in red & black. Pictorial faint green cardstock. San Francisco: c.1943.

Beautifully printed in red and black , both in Chinese and English, with a lengthy cocktail list printed on the inside of the front cover. Chop suey dun, crab chop suey, hom yee yuck, bolo-pineapple, gai fan gong, nga choy chow yuk, jow ha quo, etc. Admonishments included a warning to watch your belongings, "positively no service less than 20c, bread served with Chinese dishes 10c extra," and a statement in rear that all prices are below the high water mark of 1943. Fine.
