I am sure that this owner of this establishment on Stanyan Street did not intend to stop me in my tracks, but he did. I am guessing from the vintage of the top sign that the owner or his family have been around for some time, and at one point he had an older sign and then a newer sign.
I saw the sign and I wondered is it one or two words. On top, it looks like one word, no space in between. On the bottom, it looks like two words, space in between. Which is it?
Fortunately, being Chinese, I am sure that it is supposed to be two words for this establishment in Cole Valley. Most Cantonese words are very short.
