The term Chop suey is always associated with much ambiguity, because of its origin and the ingredients that go into its recipe. Many people believe it to have originated in China, while others opine that this dish first came into existence in America as a result of the Chinese communities immigrating to the western parts of the world. Consequently, the fusion of local American cuisine with the immigrant Chinese cuisine brought about a new style of cooking, known as the American Chinese cuisine. Chop suey is one of the finest illustrations of the American Chinese cuisine.
