Not a Chinese restaurant, despite the availability of egg rolls, mandarin chicken, party trays of fried rice, and, to stretch a point, yakamein. On the customer side of the security glass is a grocery store; on the far side is a Vietnamese-run kitchen partial to deep-frying, chicken wings a specialty. Fried shrimp and oysters (on a bun, $5) were runty and engulfed by heavy batter, but you get more than one sandwich can hold.
Do note that, even in daylight, the immediate neighborhood is a marginal one, as suggested by the ramshackle structure next door. That first photo was taken from beneath the elevated I-10 roadway.
