Old Fashioned Cantonese Chow mein? In CT?

cannedpoo | Sep 13, 2009 07:00 PM

Anyone know a source for the type of chow mein served years back at the old 'FAR EAST' restaurant in New Haven on Chapel and Howe?
It involves little else but soft cooked onion and celery, cornstarch slurry, a bit of ground pork and garnished with julienne chicken breast on top.
Served with thin crunchy noodles and (at my house) a mixture of white and friend rice....
I have to make it myself nowadays because what passes for chow mein is not good eats.
