The Cursed “Chop Suey Sandwich” — A Twitter Thread

There are many regional food traditions that polarize the masses, but none trigger people like the Chop Suey Sandwich, a popular meal for those who grew up on the North Shore in Massachusetts.

The chop suey sandwich is a cheap and filling concoction of roast pork or chicken, onions, celery, and bean sprouts cooked in a thickened soy gravy and served on a hamburger bun. It must be good since it first became popular in the early 1900s, right?

The Regional American Food Twitter account recently shared a picture of the delicacy and people reacted the way foodies do. While it doesn’t look like the most appetizing sandwich, I’d give it a try after a long night of drinking.
