100 places to eat like a local
Springfield-Style Cashew Chicken
Not only is the food delicious, it's fun to chat with Mr. Leong. Though he is now 90, he is at the restaurant daily, observing and offering advice to staff and chatting with customers.
While some cities can claim certain types of food as their own, few can claim a specific dish as their city's signature dish - Springfield-Style Cashew Chicken. A local store even created a T-shirt that lists eating cashew chicken as a Springfield bucket list item!
Springfield-Style Cashew Chicken celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. I'm sure it will still be served in local restaurants when it reaches its 100th anniversary.
