Are they related?

Like relatives?

They look similar, with side dishes that are very delicious and both can be very filling and are often purchased at a reasonable price, but not always.

Chow Mein and spaghetti.

Chow Mein are Chinese stir-fried noodles with vegetables and sometimes meat or tofu; the name is a Romanization of the Taishanese chāu-mèn. The dish is popular throughout the Chinese diaspora and appears on the menus of most Chinese restaurants abroad.

It is particularly popular in India, Nepal, the UK, and the United States.

In American Chinese cuisine, it is a stir-fried dish consisting of noodles, meat (chicken being most common but pork, beef, shrimp or tofu sometimes being substituted), onions and celery. It is often served as a specific dish at westernized Chinese restaurants.

Vegetarian or vegan Chow Mein is also common.

Here is one of the reasons why we won’t say they are always inexpensive.

At luxurylaunches.com they gush with disbelief, “The latest in this line of exorbitantly priced food items is a $2,000 pasta, which can be found at Bice restaurant in Midtown Manhattan. The dish is made up of homemade tagliolini pasta topped with two pounds of fresh lobster and finished with black truffles.”

We’re currently gushing and blushing but we’re never going to be flushing our hard earned cash down the cash register on this dish. Best wishes to those who can splurge. It sounds heavenly.

Taglierini or Tagliolini, is a type of ribbon pasta, long like spaghetti, two to three millimeters or roughly a tenth of an inch wide, similar to tagliatelle, but thin like capellini.

Is your mouth still wide open in dismay? Did you get all of that?

It is a traditional recipe in regions Molise and Piedmont of Italy, in Piedmont called Tajarin and made of egg dough.

It is typically served with butter and truffles or meat roast sauce.

Taglierini finish in short cooking time, exceedingly on fresh dough and fit best to light sauces, fish, delicacies or soups.

Sold. To the Manhattanite in the $10,000 dress.

For us?

Where is the exit please? Does anyone know of the nearest Panda Express?

We love the Chow Mein on their menu. It is to live for. Salivate for.

Panda Express is a fast food restaurant chain which serves American Chinese cuisine. With over 2,200 locations, it is the largest Asian segment restaurant chain in the United States, where it was founded and is mainly located (in addition to other countries and territories in North America and Asia).

Panda Express restaurants were traditionally located in shopping mall food courts, but the chain now operates units in many other environments and formats, including stand-alone restaurants, as well as universities, casinos, airports, military bases, amusement parks and other venues.

We’re glad of that and have frequented them wherever they are located because no matter where they are, the dish is always consistently great.

A typical Panda Express meal: Kung Pao chicken, orange chicken, Chow Mein and steamed vegetables

The chain offers a variety of Chinese-cuisine-inspired dishes (e.g., Orange Chicken; Sweet Fire Chicken Breast; Beijing Beef; Grilled Teriyaki Chicken; Kung Pao Chicken), with certain premium dishes such as Honey Walnut shrimp and Shanghai Angus steak having additional costs for the patron. “Combo meals” are served with customer’s choice of either fried rice, steamed rice, Chow Mein or super greens.

Very important, no MSG is added to any of the items at Panda Express after it has been delivered to the restaurant, nor does Panda Express purchase from any suppliers who add MSG.

We’re really glad of that too.

During these pandemic times if you want to take it a step further and learn how to make Chow Main in your home, we have a visiting writer with some suggestions.

Noodles are very popular in China. Chow mein is one of famous Chinese food in the world. It is easy to cook and you can cook it in many methods. In this article, I would like to offer you two of them.

The first method is shown as below:


Chinese noodles, egg, shredded meat, baby bok choy, green onion sections, chives, MSG, dark soy sauce

Cooking procedure:

1: Put the noodles into the pot with boiling water and boil it for several minutes. Then remove and rinse under cold water; Tips: add a little salt and salad oil when boiling so that the noodles cannot stick with each other easily.

2: Heat the pot, pour some oil and spread it in the bottom of Pot. Add egg, then remove it from the pot when it is done.

3: Add green onion sections, baby bok choy, chives, shredded meat and stir fry them together. Then put into the boiled noodles and stir fry them together for a short time.

4: Then use the chopsticks (if possible) to separate the noodles. Add the cooked egg, onion, and stir fry them for a several minutes. It is done.

Next, I like to introduce you another method:


Chinese noodles, onion, mushroom, hammer, bacon, cabbage, dry chilies, chilies sauce, soy sauce, egg, caraway

Cooking procedure:

  1. Cut all the ingredients into small pieces, and finger-joint size is preferred.
  2. Boil the noodles, then remove and rinse under cold water.
  3. Pour some salad oil into the pot; add the onion pieces into it until they become golden. Add the mushrooms.
  4. When the mushrooms begin to shrink, add hammer and bacon pieces. Stir fry them for a while, then add the cabbage.
  5. When the water comes out of cabbage, stir them for several times. If you think that the oil is not sufficient; you can add some oil again to prevent everything from sticking on the pot.
  6. Add the noodles and dry chilies or chili sauce into them.
  7. Add salt, soy sauce, at the same time please always stir the noodles.
  8. Pour the egg liquid into the pot and it will stick with noodles, and then stir them frequently. This dish is done. Pouring some diced chives onto them is preferred.

There are still many other methods to cook chow mein. Please note that you should always prevent the noodles from sticking with the pot.
