- Egg foo young
Egg foo young (Chinese: 芙蓉蛋, also spelled egg fooyung, egg foo yong, egg fu yung, or egg furong) is an
omelettedish found in American Chinese cuisine. The name comes from the Cantonese language, and may be related to the Fu Yong flower, Hibiscus mutabilis. The dish is associated with Tiki culture, and American Chinese restaurants today often list it as "Polynesian" in their menus.
This dish is prepared with beaten eggs and minced
ham. From these dishes, creative Chinese chefs in the United States at least as early as the 1930s created a pancake filled with eggs, vegetables, and meat or seafood.
The dish usually appears as a well-folded
omelettewith the non-egg ingredients embedded in the egg mixture, covered with or served in sauceor gravy. It is readily prepared for take-outand packed in a container.
It may be made with various vegetables such as
bean sprouts, celeryand water chestnuts. When meat is used as an ingredient, a choice of shredded roast pork, shrimp, shredded chicken, beef or lobstermay be offered.
In a regional variation, many American-Chinese restaurants in
St. Louis, Missouri, serve what is called a St. Paul sandwich, which is an egg foo young patty served with mayonnaise, dill pickle and sometimes lettuce and tomato between two slices of white bread.
The Vietnamese dish "
trứng hấp" is similar to egg foo young.
Japanese Chinese cuisine, the dish Kani-tama (かに玉 or 蟹玉) is similar, using crab meat instead of ham or other meats.
