A little East Coast Chow Mein History

A famous sit down meal of a Chow Mein Sandwich, French Fries, and an Orange Soda. In the early 1990’s the Chow Mein Sandwich was still popular, so much so that it remained a part of the school lunch menus!

"Another way this recipe is enjoyed is between two hamburger buns... Yup, a Chow Mein sandwich! They are famous in New England... because they are THAT GOOD!"
