Expert Tips

Lo Mein means "tossed noodles," and in Chinese cooking, noodles symbolize longevity. This restaurant favorite will be long on enjoyment without tossing your budget to the wind. Cilantro is also called Chinese parsley or fresh coriander. To keep cilantro fresh up to a week, cut 1/2 inch off the stems and place in a jar of water. Cover tops with a loose-fitting plastic bag, and refrigerate. Fish sauce adds a pleasant salty flavor to this dish, but you can use a tablespoon of soy sauce instead.
