To merkay---Is the name Golden Phoenix? I haven't been up there in a while to see if it's still there. Used to be very very clean, pleasant. I think it was in the building that used to be a mattress store, just below Balmoral.
If you're limiting yourself to that area, then Viet Hoa on Argyle is your best bet (the three-block stretch between Broadway and Sheridan, just SE of Andersonville). A 30-minute car ride to the burbs will lead you to H-Mart or Assi - Asian MEGASTORES.
