Chinese noodles are distinguised not only by their constituents but by the
way they're prepared. The noodles can be cooked, mixed, blended, and
combined with just about every variety of meat, seafood, and vegetable.
They can be added to soup, either alone, or with various toppings..etc etc

LO MEIN means "tossed or mixed noodles" and calls for parboiled noodles
(also previously drained dry and chilled) to be added, not to the hot oil
and soft- fried as in CHOW MEIN, but directly to the meat and vegetable
combinations, which have already been stir-fried. These noodles, tossed or
mixed and heated through with the cooked combinations, are moister, having
more of a sauce than the CHOW MEIN.
