The Exclusive St. Paul Sandwich might be one of the more unusual yet delicious examples of fusion cuisines ever! This dish was born from Chinese restaurants in the Midwest looking for a sandwich that would delight their customers; the name even comes from St. Paul, Minnesota. In between two slices of classic white bread is an egg foo young patty loaded with crunchy bean sprouts, savory green onions, and juicy chicken. Sour and tangy pickle chips, bright tomato, and crisp lettuce fill out the rest of the scrumptious sandwich. Once you try The Exclusive St. Paul Sandwich, you’ll be having it for lunch exclusively!
