Chow Mein is an Entree and a Side Dish in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! and a HS Required Food in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?!.

Description[]

Chow mein was first serving during the Qing dynasty in China. During the mid 19th century, gamers were eagerly awaiting the release of the tile-based game Mah-jong. This, according to gamers, was a once-in-a-lifetime event, as Mah-jong represented the developer's first game since the critically acclaimed title Go 3,000 years earlier. With less than three weeks until the game's release, the publisher became nervous. As only one copy of the game was required for four players,the publisher feared the title would move less units than anticipated.

With the release date drawing near, the publisher teamed up with acclaimed chef Xi Ling to create the official food of Mah-jong, marketed to players as the perfect dish to eat whilst playing with friends. This dish, they agreed, would be known as chow mein (literally, "stir fried noodles"). Upon release, both Mah-jong and chow mein sold record numbers, and as time went on, the popularity of chow mein eclipsed the game itself.

Historians believe it was also the first example of cross promotional branding, which would go on to be a popular form of linking highly violent games with extremely cheesy chips, and sodas.
