The current issue of Saveur magazine (March '13) has a story we wrote about some of the culinary wonders of Fall River, Massachusetts, many of which we were introduced to by Ayersian (1/2 of whom you see above, next to Sue, waitress at Mee Sum Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge). Sue was explaining that some old timers ask to get their chow mein sandwich wrapped in wax paper and actually eat it out of hand.

To drink with a chow mein sandwich? At Mee Sum, there can be only one place to seek the answer -- the roster of exotic Polynesian potations. The menu promises that this one, Dr. Ming, will "spin you to the island of Tahiti."


How was the sandwich? A bucket list item or worth a return trip? Love that cup! Do they sell those?

As chow mein sandwiches go, it was a good one. The Hoo Mee noodles they use are the best. But I must admit that the chow mein sandwich is not among my Top 10 favorite dishes! I don't know of the Dr. Ming cup is for sale.

Michael, we still have a bag of chow mein noodles in the freezer that we pull out every so often to top soups, etc. They are still as crunchy as when we first bought them with you!
