When I was a kid living in Vancouver during the 50s and 60s, my mom would take me downtown into Vancouver and have chicken chow mein in china town. I think this dish was the type of chow mein was also popular in the subburbs of Vancouver. This dish did not have the sauce that is common with the US chow mein. I don't recall much vegetables at all. The chicken was shredded and had a lot of bambo shoots and brown noodles, no rice. It had a strong sesame flavour.
I believe this dish is not made much any more as people's taste have changed, but my taste buds have not changed and my last visit there no one recall this version. Of course new restaurants and chefs have moved there and have brought with them their versions. I am hoping to find a recipe that I can make at home.
