  1. @TessCooks4U…Thanks for replying. I'm unable to reply to posts due to old version of Safari. Only can write new ones. Anyhow, I just remembered something. It's called Cantonese Soft Noodle, not lo mein, but it basically is lo mein. They definitely use peanut oil. That I'm 100% sure of. Typical added stuff is Beef, watered chestnuts, sliced carrots, broccoli and or mushrooms. Side of white or fried rice. Eggrolls, etc. Check into it.

  2. @TessCooks4U. When I lived in Chicago, I went to a Chinese place that made their lo mein with peanut oil/soy sauce mix and some other spices added. It gave the noodles, meat and vegetables an interesting flavor and the entire dish tastes completely different from the lo mein we eat today in most Chinese restaurants. I have not had lo mein like that since moving. I believe they claimed it was the Cantonese style of making lo mein. Have you ever tried batches made with peanut oil mixes?
