1. Ken Ying Low Marker
Inscription. Ken Ying Low was renowned for its homemade noodles, and visitors from Sacramento and San Francisco would always stop at the restaurant for “the best chow mein.” There were several generation of excellent cooks, and one remembered was Ng Guey. Children would watch how he made noodles, kneading the dough by jumping up and down on a long bamboo pole.
