    does anyone have a recipe for those awesome oriental noodles you find on the buffet of Chinese restaurants? Not the angel hair but the other noodles? I just love them and would be in heaven if I could make them at home for myself.
    Thanks

    Might have to describe them more. There are lots of different kinds of asian noodles, and even more ways to spice them.

    Silkie, they are flat and have onion and maybe some shredded carrot. Mild flavored. So sorry, I can't be more specific. Not sweet. I guess I am no help to you at all am I?

    Hmm... maybe you can do a google search on Asian noodles and find a picture of what you were eating and see if you can't find an associated name and then recipe. I'm probably not much help to you either!

    As for you leslie, I have no idea where your post came from on a thread on food and tonight is not the night for me to see something like that. To each their own, but you just got a big fat check mark on your name. For anyone who sees that, it is a GOOD example of how NOT to act and a great way to derail a thread. I don't share a belief in God, but I sure don't put it against anyone and their beliefs!

    Now the hard part, trying to find out what they put with the noodles that you liked. Since "Lo mein" is just "with noodles"!
