Lobster Lo Mein (?) at Golden Coast

chowhoundX | Nov 5, 2016 05:04 PM

For maximizing dim sum flavor-to-hassle ratio, I've been really enjoying Golden Coast since discovering it last weekend.

Today, on my second visit, I penciled in a "1" on the menu for lobster lo mein, which appeared in Chinese like this:
龍蝦撈麵 $19.99

However, when the menu came back with the printed receipt, the waiter had crossed off my penciled "1," and on the receipt it said this:
特價—龍蝦伊麵 $13.99

The lobster was fine, but the noodles were bland and soggy. So that plus the price difference made me wonder if the dish I got was somehow different from what I ordered.

I read Japanese, so I know this is "special - lobster [伊] noodles." In Japanese, 伊 stands for Italy, so is this basically linguini?
