Well? Go on.
Some form of noodles
Sesame prawn toast & spring rolls to share
*pick up indian menu*
not even kidding.
because these are the two options. The only two.
What do I win?
Deep fried tofu with ginger and spring onion
veg spring rolls
A shitty chicken
A shitty rice
curry chip - for me
gravy chip - for him
protion of chicken fried rice - to share
it was a massive feed. Best chicken fried rice ive ever tasted. Lots in it.
portion of rice
portion of chips
Portion of chicken balls
we couldnt finish it
It just isn't.
so its technically chinese. But i see what you mean.
Im partial to a crispy duck pancake. Better?
Had sweet and sour chicken balls and chicken chow mein.
This is no way to live.
fried shredded chicken peking style
butterfly king prawns in breadcrumbs
Hands down the best Chinese takeaway dish I've ever had
So, if there's a few of us
Chicken in piquant hot sauce with sesame seeds ( basically sweet and sour, but very spicy)
Crispy lamb in hot garlic sauce
Egg fried rice
They always chuck in free spring rolls which is cool.
Wash it down wit schwepps lemonade ( the beat drink with a Chinese IMO)
i have tirelessly been attempting to replicate a good simple egg fried rice and it's just never quite right
i've gone off it loads, but that's maybe because their vegetarian sections always SUCK and not enough places have tofu.
veggie hot and sour soup
egg fried rice
bean curd and veg with some kind of sweet and sour sauce that isn't sweet and sour sauce. Capital sauce would be ideal.
but in reply to your question, i think it's a combination of their well seasoned woks and too much salt. I think because most of them have rice cooker things as well they get the rice proper perfect EVERY TIME.
Let it cool. (Leftover rice works well for this)
Make sure it's properly seperated (ie bang the pot about, stir with a fork, etc).
Heat some oil in a wok (sesame oil is my preference and medium heat works for me, you'll have to experiment).
Crack in a couple of eggs.
Make like you're about to make some scramble, let the egg start to cook a bit (just a bit mind), creating a 'soft base' to chuck the rice into.
Throw your rice in and stir, breaking up the egg as much as possible.
If you want at this point, chuck in some peas, spring onion, whatever.
Keep stirring until the rice loses it's 'wet look' and it starts to look like actual fried rice.
Season once cooked.
sweet and sour pork HONK KONG style
chicken chop suey
egg fried rice
Usually eat it with nice bread from home so don't tend to buy rice or anything with it. I actually hated chinese food in china and went to chinese mcdonalds a lot instead but I was an ignorant teen then, or chinese food has since grown on me
that does salt and pepper frogs legs and assorted other 'genuine' dishes.
I went once. Not a fan. It was wierd.
...someone, somewhere is probably eating that stuff out there. Law of averages innit.
Chicken chow mein
Egg fried rice
Whatever the girlfriend wants (though I tend to veto any choice that doesn't include beef)
However, was persuaded into going to a place in the Chinese Quarter last year.
I reluctantly went expecting to hate it, but found it quite nice, it persuaded me to give Chinese another go.
It helps that there is a nice place at the end of the road where our student house is - All the Chinese students eat there, so it must be good rite? - It's a bit expensive but is pretty damn good.
I usually get the stir fried beef with leeks and egg fried rice.
The chips you get from Chinese takeaways always seem to be nice.
Chips, egg fried rice and curry sauce in a tray is a good post-drinking option as an alternative to a kebab or similar awfulness.
1x special fried rice
1x chicken chow mein
6x mini vegetable spring rolls
1x bag of prawn crackers
DULL. Sometimes it gets livened up with the addition of seaweed or kung-po pork. Usually not.
one egg-fried rice
one pork chow mein
one other - maybe a hong kong-style sweet and sour chicken, or maybe something with oyster cause. i chop and change.
sweet & sour, lemon chicken, beef in blackbean. When I lived in Manchester though I ate a lot in Chinatown and tehre's a erstaurant there that dopes an awesome tasting menu. Things discovered- I do not like jellyfish so much but I love char sui pork, ostrich in lemongrass and something else i wasn't expecting. i think it was a big fish.
i went through a phase of only ordering seafood form my local chinese back home until my mum told me that the scallop in chilli and ginger was actually eel caught in the Clyde. I don't know where she got this from, but I haven't been able to look at it right ever since.
i'd quite like a chinese now. I might have dim sun for lunch. I'd like some of that deepfried shredded crispy beef in sticky chilli sauce. I don't even care if it's not properly chinese, I want it, now.
does that count?
Sweet and Sour Chicken
Chicken Chow Mein
but there's a place for EVERYTHING now and again.
the only thing hat would make me go for Chinese over Japanese/Korean/Thai/Italian/Indian is crispy duck and I'm vegetarian now.
but that's not the damn thread
special fried rice
love chinese food but never had a genuinely good takeaway main course, so tend to stick to the starters when ordering delivery.
or Singapore Noodles
Sometimes i get Double Happiness because i like the name.
Extra large container. Egg fried rice base topped with crispy chicken fillet & crispy duck. Served with a pot of curry sauce
It has lots of Chillis in it.
God, I love ribs.
...the best Chinese takeaway I've ever visited:
Basically just working my way through the menu, altho do tend to favour the fried peanuts.
Hot belly pork
Garlic sauce, all the salad. Ta.
crispy aromatic duck
not had chinese in years though
egg fried rice and beef in satay sauce
Szechuan or Vietnamese style Beef
Vegetable Fried Rice.
If it's just a quite eat, then it's fried rice and curry sauce.
Sweet and sour pork balls
Special fried rice
