chopsuey Chinese dishes based on bean sprouts and shredded vegetables, cooked with shredded quick‐fried meat, capped with a thin omelette. Not authentically Chinese, but an invention of Chinese restaurateurs reputedly in either New York or San Francisco in 1896, although it may derive from tsap seui from the Guangzhou region of China. Unlike true Chinese food, the flavours of a chopsuey are all mixed together; one translation is ‘savoury mess’.
