You Should Never Order Lo Mein At A Chinese Restaurant. Here's Why

Lo mein may be the perfect Chinese comfort food, slightly sweet, a little bit sticky, not too spicy, but oh-so-satisfying. If you can't eat a whole plateful in one sitting, the leftovers seem to taste even better the next day, even if you eat them straight from the carton and cold from the fridge. Still, as tempting as lo mein may be, it's really not something you should order from a Chinese restaurant.

    It's tempting after a long day at work to take the easy route for dinner and drop some dollars on Chinese food. After all, it's easy, tasty, and you don't have to do the washing up, but although going out for Asian deliciousness is an easy choice when you're tired and hangry, it doesn't come without its risks. Not all restaurants are created equal, and the same is true for the food they make. In some restaurants, the food on your plate may be indistinguishable from that found on a plate in Beijing, but in others, the food you awkwardly wrangle into your mouth may be about as authentically Chinese as Kentucky Fried Chicken, and have all the health "benefits" to match. So next time you decide to eat with sticks, just remember some things are better left on the menu.
