    Hi Tracey,
    I have mushroom chow mein from my chinese takeaway (i'm not veggie but I love this!) and I class it as free...

    Not sure if it is but a chicken chow mein is 6 syns on green for the chicken so I think mushroom chow mein should be free, after all it's mushroom, onion, beansprouts and noodles - no gravy just some soy sauce.

    Hope this helps!

    I've always wondered if they fry the softened noodles in oil along with everything else as i think it tastes oily sometimes, if that is the case it is prob more syns.

    I why odn't you have a portion of mixed veg with plain chow mein, the mixed veg comes in a nice sauce. Or mixed veg with boiled rice xx

    I would ask them to cook it in less/no oil and then drain it at home if it still looks oily. Stick to plain boiled rice/noodles as the main bulk.

    I assume that ^^ is due to the oil content.
