|What is Sub Gum style Chinese cuisine?|
|Aug 1, 2007 04:46|
|It is called Su Shi Jin (素什锦) in Chinese.|
A kind of dish made of various vegetables including mushroom, carrots, green pepper, toufu, agaric and others. Different places have different matching and cooking ways. Usually no meat in it, so quite suitable for vegetarians.

|Evening - thank you so much for this helpful and fast reply. Your description is consistent with my childhood memories of eating Chinese food in Brooklyn, NY. I remember eating it in what was called "Chow Mein" with either Shrimp or Chicken and delicious fresh and colorful vegetables without MSG or thickeners.|
I have not seen Sub Gum advertised anywhere since then. Are there restaurants in the Los Angeles area which serve or specialize in this style? How would I order it? Would I expect to find it if I went to China? How does "Chow Mein" translate in English (or Chinese)? So many questions prompted by your beautiful responses and photos. Sorry to be so wordy.
Thank You, Ed

|You normally don't find Sub Gum being advertised. It is not considered a "proper" dish in GD area !! These words are basically Cantonese ( & meaning mixture) and this dish is probably "popularised" by the Hongkongers for westerners.|
Bon apetit !!

For your question:
Are there restaurants in the Los Angeles area which serve or specialize in this style? How would I order it?
------ I don't know for sure whethere there is restaurants in the Los Angeles cas I have not been there. But I think you can find it in China Town.
Would I expect to find it if I went to China?
------- Sure you can find it nearly everywhere of China. Different places have different styles.
How does "Chow Mein" translate in English (or Chinese)
-------- Davec is right. Chow Mein is the stiro-fried noodles, in Chinese it is 炒面. You can find it in most northern cities of China.
I will try to find some pictures of Chow Mein in China....
