I grew up in Barron Park- now live near Yosemite.
I believe the Chinese restaurant you are remembering may be the Golden Dragon at 544 Emerson. I think it was owned by the Leung Family.

Yup, it was the Golden Dragon! I've been googling Charlie Leung and came up with this blog. Fun! My mother and I ate often here in the later '50's.
I just ate some chicken soup (out of a can!) for my current cold symptoms. Immediately, I flashed back to the little cup of broth than preceeded the "American/Chinese" entrees! Entrees such as liver and onions as well as, chow mein.
Charlie gave me pink rosebuds on my 13th birthday... my first gift of flowers. Of course, I'll never forget this!
Where's Charlie now? I retired to the Big Island of Hawaii after 40 years in the SFUSD.
