The story I've heard about chop suey is that a group of hungry miners arrived in San Francisco on a Sunday. Finding all the restaurants closed, they went to Chinatown and rousted a Chinese restaurant owner from his house above the restaurant, demanding food. Having nothing prepared, the man chopped up some leftovers, threw them together, and voila! chop suey. Being barbarians, the Americans naturally loved the stuff.
