According to the popular Thrillist food, travel, and entertainment media outlet, Mee Sum Restaurant deserved high ranks to be on their list. Their famous chow mein sandwich is one of the main reasons they cracked the list.
Thrillist described Mee Sum as follows:
The history of Chinese American cuisine isn’t all about orange chicken and crab rangoons: there are smaller, more regional stories that are fascinating in their own right. Go to Mee Sum, located in a small town on the border of Massachusetts and Rhode Island, to experience the local, cheap eats innovation that sustained factory workers and students since WWII: the chow mein sandwich. Mee Sum’s version is widely acknowledged as the best take on this old-school dish that stretches the definition of “sandwich,” with perfectly crispy fried noodles and brown sauce served in a hamburger bun. It’s a beautiful mess and totally worth it.
