CHOW MEIN - not Lo Mein!!

Heather | Apr 6, 2006 03:16 PM

Okay, am I crazy do people in LA think lo mein is chow mein? I can't find a place that makes a good chow mein - the kind in white sauce with cabbage and celery, NO NOODLES! I called my local place last night and I asked what the difference was...ANSWER: Chow mein is like lo mein but has no soy sauce. What? Went to another place and the chow mein had a few pieces of celery and cabbage, and a whole lot of noodles. Help! Does anyone know where I can find what I'm looking for? Pregnant and desperate over here.
