Never heard of it!
That was a fun read. I wonder where she digs up all those old menus and ads.
I’d like to sample of few of those obscure offerings at JS Mills Sandwich Room, or at least know what was in them.
This made me remember my mother’s Egg Foo Yung. It’s been more than half a century. It was quite exotic at the time; our little town (nor any of the surrounding little towns) didn’t have a Chinese restaurant (Chop Suey House?) that I know of.
Now I’m on a quest. I’ve found Egg Foo Yung on the menus of a couple of places not that far from me. I’ll bring an order home, get some white bread, and report back,
There’s nothing puzzling about the St. Paul sandwich. It’s egg foo yung between slices of white bread, with some stuff piled on it.
What’s puzzling is why anyone would eat it. I’m not violently opposed to any of the individual parts of the St. Paul Sandwich, I just object to their combination.
I didn’t mean to suggest it was good, but I have enjoyed egg foo yung a time or two some years ago.
