Hello foodies. I'm on the hunt for a very specific kind of pan-fried noodle that I can't find anywhere in NYC.
The Chinese restaurant that I grew up with outside of Boston, Golden Star (since closed), made these incredible plain, white, stretchy pan-fried noodles. They were flat and thin, exactly like rice noodles, but not clear or translucent. These were very stretchy, flat, thin, very white noodles that were flash boiled and simply sautéed in a pan. They served them all sauced-up in Lo Mein, but also as a menu item simply called “Pan-Fried Noodles.” They were non-greasy and very toothsome and satisfying.
All of the pan-fried noodles that I have ordered here have been round egg noodles or clearish, flat rice noodles. Has anyone seen anything like the ones I’m looking for?
