When property, like a Chinese restaurant, is seized by the Chinese government to make way for another public-sector or private-sector enterprise and inadequate compensation, or no compensation at all, is paid to the owner of that property.

Alternatively, it would be a prize given to a professional Chinese chef who makes the best lo mein around.
When the Three Gorges Dam was built the Chinese government declared Eminent Lo Mein and thousands of Chinese restaurants were seized and shut down in order to make way for the new reservoir.

Hu Wang Fat makes the best lo mein in Albany, NY. He should receive an Eminent Lo Mein award Culinary Institute.
