...this is the only item in this thread so far the mention of which has made me salivate.
Balonz is right.
then the prawn toast
Too inconsistent from place to place. Had some awful CCB. Never had bad Prawn Toast.
and deep fry them to order.
and crispy chilli beef
never less than 95% grease
I really want Chinese now you pricks
but as a side order to a main dish, because i like sauce on them and I'm gredy.
Obviously with hoisin sauce though.
only if you agree that dim sum is best on a non average menus
is possibly the greatest thing on earth, HOWEVER, as you've rightly identified, you can't always get hold of high quality dim sum.
when you do your pancakes to you include the shredded salad? I do but the gf just refuses flat out.
Just went to the gym at lunch in fact. Three people now recognise me. #totallygym
Spring onion is hell incarnate and cucumber is just pointless, may as well pour water over them
But spring onion is a LIFEGIVER.
It's all just gonna taste like spring onion if it's even been near the fucking stuff anyway so just cut out the middle man.
ugh what you are the worst. only a stupid baby would not include the salad. what is there to offset the sweetness and fat of the duck and sauce otherwise. why not just eat a bowl of treacle, baby.
So shove that up your arse you twat
I hate black bean sauce and all of that tasteless shite like 'chicken and sweetcorn' (BABYFOOD RIDDLED WITH MSG) OR 'chicken with pineapple'. Any sauce that is see through just looks semeny and what are those disgusting rectacular yellow things? ARgggh, one got into my chinese last week and i had ot spit it out.
I do love a good sweet & sour though or spicy szechuan king prawns (although am a bit funny with prawns right now after a prawn incident at xmas.)
yet to find a chinese local to me that does enough decent dishes outside of this glop to make it worthwhile
IF YOU WERE COMING TO GLASGOW THIS WEEKEND WE COULD HAVE GONE THERE BUT YOU'RE NOT.
Viscous, salty loveliness.
Chinese is a contentious topic huh. Bloody love those cheap Chinese curries you get. Get a bag of chips, lob a duck curry on it - fucking heaven.
Those big chunks of onion and slightly suspect 'chicken' (cat). Yum.
Once I got one that had the speciality crinkle cut carrots in it. Who puts carrot in a fucking curry?
Your own cheap and nasty (but nice) Chinese curry in minutes.
I thought it was just oil, water and turmeric.
but you just mix it with water and heat it up and it thickens a treat.
I'm not aversive to salty food (LOL, scottish diet etc.) but I ifnd it a bit one dimensional, like just an assault of salt and no back up to it.
guilty pleasure- i always get chips from the chinese. I never manage to eat more than about eight of them, but they are an essential. i wish they did half portions.
they're great in a restaurant but for takeaway, the pancakes always seem to go limp and it's a bit of a fiddle.
for takeaway I normally go with crispy shredded chili beef. And all of the dim sum in the world, whch for some reason (unlike the duck and pancakes) does seem to survive the journey from restaurant to my house.
My girlfriend is a vegetarian, but we live near a Chinese that does vegetarian versions of everything on the menu. I don't know what sort of crack they use but the veggie crispy duck pancakes are BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL. Hard to believe, but true!
Get a half duck and have it as one of the mains, babykins
