    Sue Lau's Note:

    A take-off of the well known Cantonese egg fu yung and local to the St. Louis area, this can now be found nationwide, in the local chop suey houses and Chinese express type restaurants. Surprisingly, the sandwich has nothing to do with St. Paul and why the sandwich is named that is unclear. But for anyone growing up in the St. Louis area might find this sandwich to be a happy memory, and a recipe almost lost to the culinary community.

      Thank you so much for the awesome recipe! It tastes exactly like the St. Paul that I love from St. Louis! I am from St. Louis but do not live there any more. So great that I can now not only crave these yummy sandwiches but make them at home.
