American Chopsuey
American Chopsuey represents the confluence of western and oriental cuisines, and when served with fried noodles, it is often considered an overseas adaptation of the popular Chinese dish, Chow Mein. Chopsuey is essentially sautéed veggies flavoured with sauces and thickened with corn flour. When served atop crisp-fried Hakka noodles, it makes a truly sumptuous treat that is both filling and tasty!
