FALL RIVER -- It's been a fixture in the city of Fall River.
Regina Mark and her husband Kenny have now run the Mee Sum Restaurant for over 50 years, and for its duration, they've served a staple meal: the chow mein sandwich.
"We are the second generation in this restaurant. My in-laws, they started the business," Regina told WBZ-TV.
So what goes into their famous chow mein sandwich?
"If you're a vegetarian, you can have just vegetables on it. If you like seafood, you can have shrimp on it. You like pork, you can have pork," Regina said.
Now people from all over have come to Fall River and Mee Sum Restaurant to try it.
"As far as Hawaii and Alaska and we have some from Tokyo who've come and I say, 'How do you find out about us, this little place?' They say from the internet now," Regina said.
As for making the sandwich, the noodles are first put in the fryer. Once they're done, they are put on a bun and then topped off with gravy.
Regina says she's happy to know her recipe has made many people happy.
"I'm happy to bring to get Fall River known by some food. Food always makes people happy right? Yes!" Regina said.
