What's on the Menu? May 25th 2011

Tomorrows Menu will feature Tomato and Cheese Quiche for breakfast and Beef Lo Mein with Sesame Broccoli for lunch.

The term lo mein comes from the Cantonese lōu mihn (撈麵), meaning “stirred noodles”.
The Cantonese usage of the character 撈, pronounced lōu and meaning "to stir", differs from the character's usual meaning of "to dredge" or "to scoop out of water" in Mandarin, in which case it would be pronounced làauh or lòuh in Cantonese (lāo in Mandarin).In Mandarin, the dish is more typically called bàn miàn (拌麵), not to be confused with bǎn miàn (板麵).

In American Chinese restaurants, lo mein is a popular take-out food. In this setting, lo mein noodles are usually stirred with a sauce made from soy sauce and other seasonings. Such vegetables as bok choy and cabbage can be mixed in. Meats like roast pork, beef or chicken are often added. Shrimp lo mein, lobster lo mein, vegetable lo mein, and "House" lo mein (more than one meat) are sometimes available.

Join us for a meal.
