Not really a chopsuey, not really American, and most certainly not Chinese. (Actually, what exactly is a chopsuey?)
A red, soupy tomato-ketchup based concoction with noodles, fried noodles, lots of questionable vegetables, some minced chicken (if it's the non-veg version), topped with a fried egg. All this is prepared with a generous helping of soya sauce and ajinomoto to give you that special Indian-Chinese flavour, which stays by your side all through the evening, night and into the next day.
Waiter (smiling gratuitously): Sir.
Greg looks up from the stinking laminated menu.
Greg: Chicken Manchurian. What is it?
Waiter: Chicken, sir, Very good. First class.
Greg: And American Chopsuey?
Waiter: Noodles, sir, First class.
Greg gets the drift. He orders the latter.
The rest, he leaves to fate.
