How To Choose Lo Mein Noodles For The Best House Lo Mein Dish

Some people prefer to make their own noodles at home, but for those who want a quick and easy meal, store-bought noodles are the way to go. There are a few things you should keep in mind when selecting noodles for lo mein.

Choose The Right Type Of Noodles

There are three main types of lo mein noodles – egg noodles, wheat noodles, and rice noodles. While all three types of noodles can be used for lo mein, the best type of noodle to use is the firm wheat noodle. This type of noodle has a chewy texture that pairs well with the other ingredients in lo mein. It also holds up well to being stir-fried, so it won’t turn into a mushy mess. 

Choose Firm Noodles

You’ll want to choose a noodle that is firm and not too soft. This will ensure that the noodles don’t turn to mush when they are cooked. The key to a great texture lo mein is using the right type of noodles.
