    This is not a translated menu, but I post it nonetheless since I have been completely unable to find the menu on the web. I thought that others might wish to be able to peruse the menu of this exceptional GNR.

    You are, indeed, correct. And what is oddest about that is that menupages is where I went first. For some inexplicable reason, I could not pull up a Sun Wah menu from them yesterday.

    But, in my defense, I note that my scans are of a newer (and higher-priced) menu.

    Still, I appreciate knowing that the menu really is there, my inability to get it downloaded notwithstanding.

    Gypsy Boy, thanks for the scans.

    I'm using them to learn "culinary Chinese" - with the combination of the Google language tool, the few words I know and this menu as a Rosetta Stone, my goal is to be able to read the "Specials Boards/Signs" often found on the walls of Chinatown restaurants.

    Now if somebody can just smuggle out a laminated copy from Lee Wing Wah's "lunch" menu specials - which is entirely in Chinese, I'd be set. :twisted:

    Jay K, do you have this book?

    Jay K,

    No copy of Lee Wing Wah's Chinese lunch menu, but here are links to images of Lee Wing Wah's Chinese wall board specials, at least as of July '07.

    Link 1, 2, 3.

    Enjoy,
