The other night, I had some Chinese food delivered to me. Being bored with the usual things I get I decided to try something I've never had.
Admittedly never having it in all the years i've eaten Chinese food, i decided to try Chow mein. I've seen it on plenty of Chinese food picture
menus i figured, why not get that? I like lo mein noodles and i like hibachi fried noodles so i figured hey more noodles!
Sooo, much to my surprise, i receive my food and notice something isn't right. The dish i got was celery, bean sprouts, cabbage and onions in a white
sauce. No noodles. So thinking they sent me the wrong thing, I called to see what's up. The guy at the restaurant proceeded to tell me that I what i
ordered was chow mein and the noodle dish is lo mein. So i said ok and begrudgingly ate my noodle-less food.
So trying to really get down to it I took to the internet for some pics and recipes. I found that what i supposedly was eating was Chop suey! I do
know that it was basically created in America but who am i to question an actual Chinese guy that works at an actual Chinese restaurant ? I'm curious
if this is a regional thing or was the restaurant just wrong?
I'd like to say, it wasn't bad all in all but when you're hungry for something specific it's a bummer when you get something else.
