Chow mein sandwich

Originating in Fall River, Massachusetts, in the 1930s or 1940s, the chow mein sandwich, which typically consists of a brown gravy-based chow mein mixture placed between a hamburger-style bun and is served hot, is popular on Chinese-American restaurant menus throughout southeastern Massachusetts and parts of neighboring Rhode Island.

Typically, customers ask for their sandwiches to be "strained" or "unstrained." This refers to whether they would like their sandwich with vegetables. If the chow mein is strained it has no vegetables.
