What ingredients in "real" Cantonese chow mein?

First of all, where to eat this at a value-for-money price in the GTA (sit down or take-out)? With the most ingredients preferable.

Then what ingredients should it have in it? I've had (or lack thereof):

- dryish noodles
- soggy noodles
- shitake mushrooms
- bbq pork
- sliced beef
- sliced chicken
- squid
- scallops
- brocolli
- green peppers
- carrots
- bean sprouts
- shrimp
- crab sticks
- water chestnut
- bamboo
- bok choy

    Ming's Noodle Cafe
    3447 Kennedy Rd just south of Steeles
    You get your money worth for their fried noodle and fried rice (starting from $5)
    BBQ pork, sliced chicken, squid, shrimp, crab sticks, shanghai bok choy in a clear sauce served on deep fried crispy egg noodle. Don't forget to try with their house made chili oil... hmm good

      I've never had mine with crab sticks. There's also onions and baby corn.
      Helena's in North York (Steeles, I think) has a good old-fashioned Cantonese Chow Mein.
