Four choices, with white rice and thin soup ($4): fried shrimp, tripe and celery, crimson-stained (and odd-tasting) bamboo, and superb (if largely hidden) sauteed flowering chives. Choosing between Golden Bowl and its mirror-image neighbor, Yi Mei Gourmet Food, is a toss-up; have a gander at the windows and see what looks good.
