Looking for Pan Fried Noodles in the East Bay
I'm looking for pan fried noodles - slightly crispy on one side. I think Hong Kong style might be too crispy but it depends on the preparation. Would like bok choy and mushrooms but not much else in the dish. I'd like to purchase enough for 20 as a side for a spicy crab dish. Extra points if I don't have to go to Chinatown. Any ideas on what to order and who makes a good version? Thanks
I would imagine that any good Chinese resto could fry you a batch of noodles w/bok choy and mushrooms. Just give advance notice.
New Gold Medal in Oakland Chinatown serves up a very decent chow mein with pan fried noddles..not too crispy. You'll have to verify if it's how you like it...way to vague.
Anyone try the new Sun Hong Kong on the bottom level of Kip's? Sun HK use to serve great chow mein...but this might not be related. In Berkeley near campus.

I haven't tried New Sun Hong Kong's HK style chow mein but their beef chow fun is fine and the portion is big. The $3.75 happy hour special chow mein is made with thick noodles.
It's run by the kids of the now closed Oakland restaurant's owners. They also run Kip's and you can order from the Kip's menu downstairs. One of the days I'll see if I can special order a char siu pineapple and jalapeno pizza.
