My young waiter pronounced the name of this old-school Chino-Latino restaurant "Hey leh-mun"; I like to imagine that his older colleague, who spoke Cantonese to the chef and Spanish and English to other customers, would have said "Eye leh-Moan." (Admittedly, for that pronunciation the spelling isn't quite right.) After the customary wonton noodles with duck sauce and this workaday roast pork chop suey ($8.95), the thought of flan, touted by a handwritten sign behind the counter, was uninspiring. Instead I took my check; with it came the fortune "Your home is a cheery place to live" in a cookie tasting of stale breakfast cereal.
