What's your (usual) order?
not for any particular reason, I bet it'll completely lovely when I do.
I'll have a big portion of them chicken balls in sweet and sour sauce, but leave it til about 9pm would you, ffs.
one of the greatest things about chinese food. I get them, and duck w/ pancakes
you've been having a mental all week.
Thai? Thai not
Special fried rice
Egg fried rice
Plain small chow mein
A spring roll.
Total cost: £8
However I'm very skeptical when it comes to ordering a Chinese takeaway being a vegetarian. I know they've probably rubbed duck all over the curd and rice and everything before sending it.
The lady will have some sizzling prawn satay bullshit thing that's twice the price of mine but we'll still split the bill down the middle because it's not worth the argument, and some pak choi in oyster sauce to share, please.
Maybe an egg fried rice if we're super greedy but that's a LOT of food for two.
(Hakka, round the corner from the Portland. Best Chinese food I've ever had)
nom nom nom
Chips/Egg Fried Rice/Curry Sauce in a large container
Could do some won tons or prawn toasts to start as well if I'm feeling particularly piggy.
Roast pork with beansprouts
Special fried rice
Mini vegetable spring rolls (if we're feeling saucy)
but it wasn't a takeaway. sorry
if you didn't take it away
it was just brought to me while i sat at their table
Always full of water, innit
So it goes further. Erm
gloopy msg bastard mix please
Don't think I've ever had a nice one. And no matter what you order, its always brown/beige/non colourful.
I just not think its for me. Always feels stodgy and not fresh. I don't get takeaways often so no biggy.
Feel sooooooooo greasy. Horrible stuff
Get a quality Szechuan one on the blower and you've got yourself some numbered oriental heaven.
(about 4 years ago)
it was the one out of Birds of a Feather who wasn't the fat one or the trampy one.
share fried rice and chips
Or chicken balls, BBQ sauce, fried rice
Or chicken in black bean sauce, fried rice.
Great bunch 'o lads.
1 round of salt and pepper chilli squid
1 round of sweet and sour pork BALLS
1/4 aromatic crispy duck with pancakes (can you shred it for me though please, I can't be fucked)
1 round of mixed meat flat noodle
We had some scally kid start working at my old local Chinese and when i called and asked for that, he was like 'errrr, whats that' and i was like 'its like pork...'
My szechuan mates taught me how to correctly pronounce it.
If mandarin is it is say-wah.
which is basically an omelette. My other half gets sweet and sour chicken balls and egg fried rice, I save the rest of the rice in the freezer for use with any homemade dishes that need rice (pretty dodgy, but we have never had food poisoning off freezing and reheating rice that has already been reheated multiple times and sat at room temperature and been in delivery drivers' cars, so fuck it). One starter, usually duck spring rolls, or crispy duck if splashing out, or some kind of squid deep fried. I am not a massive fan of your average Chinese menu, plus I feel can rank for the rest of the night and the next morning because of the salt, fat and general mankiness of it. The foo yung is the best option for me, but I would rather Japanese food over it any day.
Note to self: don't trust swype to order the food.
yes it is all for me, no you can't have a spring roll.
Ready in 5-10 minutes you say? See you then.
1 x Salt and Pepper Ribs
1 x Beef Chow Mein
1 x Banana Fritters
I only ever eat Chinese food once a year. Not that I don't like it, I just can't afford it.
so I'll have tofu Panang curry, coconut rice, edamame beans and some prawn toast.
OOOOH, nothing for me, it is TOOO greasy and fatty for the likes of me...
just thought i'd let you know Mr Wong.

Scezhaun special-quite nice
Crispy chilli beef-horrible, not sure why I got this
Egg rice-dry as a bone
£15.50, inc £1 card payment and £1.50 delivery.
Real waste of money, man
Give me the crispy deep-fried goodness!
Our local gives you a free bottle of Lambrini if you spend over £20, clearly they're looking to increase their market share in the all-important hen night & teenage party demographics.
they'd get my business
