Cary, I understand...when I have my mind set on something I'm usually disappointed if I don't follow through exactly. The lo mein recipes I'm looking for, I know they're not totally authentic in the sense that if you were to travel abroad they are the dishes you would find.

You are obviously traveling to the wrong places. If you are ever in Toronto I can take you to restaurants that are truly authentic.
We have an incredibly large Chinese population here now. Most of the new arrivals expect real Chinese food so eateries frequently import their chef's from Hong Kong or China. I have noticed over the last 30 years that the food has slowly moved away from "Canadian Chinese Food".
So much to eat so little time
I would send you an order of Lo Mein but it does not travel well.

I'm sure it's possibly quite different Cary. Like I said, not looking for authentic from China. I'm looking for authentic "neighborhood chinese takeout". And I'm sure in places with large chinese populations that may be quite different. But my chinese restaurant is definitely owned by chinese
