The Fillmore Meets Manilatown
Across town in the Fillmore
…Yngojo Bros. Food store 1939
Russian Hill, Marina, North Beach
and Chinatown my roots
Now onto Post and Webster,,Japan town
Fliptown and Jazz Clubs
Heard of the I-Hotel—Manilatown
story…huge civic noise 1977
What’s my link to the past???
My dad once sold German shears
to Manilatown barbers.
Oh, please bring back the Bataan Cafe!!!
And let’s once again boogie with brother Al
wailing his “Jackson-Kearny Street blues”
and enjoying the cafe’s adovo and rice
