Yes, it’s another noodle post. Sorry not sorry. I was looking through my pictures and it looks like I had like a pretty long stretch of eating lo mein noodles in the summer. What is lo mein you ask? It’s basically a mixed noodle dish, usually egg noodles with whatever toppings you want. Chinese restaurants usually have it with beef brisket and either choy sum or bok choy. Let’s get into it.
I was super excited when Bo’s found their new location after Ohana Marketplace closed down. We did an office order with them and it went pretty smoothly. The reason why I don’t have this price is because it’s generally a soup dish but they are willing to do it lo mein style. The toppings are great, love their won ton. The noodles were a disaster. I don’t know if it was because they had just opened in this location but the egg noodles were so overly cooked that they were just one big gummy mess. Do. Not. Recommend.
I consider Lee Ho Fook to be one of the originals for this dish and they always make it great. Seriously. And the price? Can’t be beat! Some places don’t allow you to choose between the tenderloin and tendon and not everyone likes tendon, but Lee Ho Fook lets you choose! Not pictured is the side of soup they also give you with the dish. It’s like the broth they use with their noodle soups. Delicious!
This one is my favorite. I can’t explain why, the meat is tender and perfectly seasoned. The noodles are cooked well (ahem) and I like the greens they serve it with. Kukui does not give a side of soup with these noodles but I don’t really need it. They also give you a pretty hefty portion. Winner winner chicken dinner!
