Someone on another webboard mentioned being charged extra for chow mein noodles for her soup at the local Chinese restaurant. I've been to numerous Chinese restaurants all over, including many in Berlin, Germany, several in Mexico and even one in Istanbul and Alanya, Turkey, and, for the most part, these restaurants did NOT serve chow mein noodles with the soup.
Is it normal for restaurants to serve chow mein noodles with the soup or is this something mostly found in the US and in areas with many US expats? Thank you. I will look forward to your answers.
