I was new to the area and I wanted to get a taste of some good Chinese food. I had a craving.
On a whim, I asked my landlord & landlady where to go for Chinese food being the husband was a New Yorker like me (thought he knew where to find GOOD Chinese food). That was a BIG mistake. It is a hole-in-the-wall place and normally those are apt to have the tastiest Chinese food. It's a "New York City" thing.
I bought egg foo yung and there were so much sprouts and onions you would have thought it was an onion egg foo yung! Yuck! As a culinary student at the time, this was such a big disappointment.
