Favorite Chinese takeout foods

What are your favorite foods to order when having Chinese takeout? I have two favorites: cold sesame noodles and hot and sour soup.

Dumplings, either fried or steamed

Garlic chicken

Fried Chinese donuts (really just fried lumps of canned biscuit dough)

Egg foo yung - I have it for dinner tonight. It's my comfort food.

Decisions, decisions . . .

For soup, it's a toss-up between hot & sour and wonton

For appetizers, it's a toss up between steamed dumplings and shrimp toast

Then for the main meal, one of the following:

Singapore mei fun

eggplant in garlic sauce

ho yu gai poo

chicken chow fun

dan dan noodles

lobster with ginger & scallion

Szechuan shrimp & scallops

chicken with mixed vegetables

My favorite place has a separate "Chinese" menu — for instance, their kung pao is totally different than the American menu kung pao. I get that, eggplant in hot garlic sauce, and shredded pork in hot garlic sauce.

You like Szechuan peppercorns, R16?

Chinese American dishes all have copious amounts of sugar and oil.

In movies, when people eat Chinese takeout, why do the actors stab at their food with chopsticks? I don’t see real people doing that but for some reason actors love to do it.

Fried pork dumplings for sure. I INHALE those motherfuckers. Also scallion pancakes, and shredded sesame beef.

by Anonymousreply 27September 18, 2023 3:46 AM

If I go to the dumpling place, a double order of spinach dumplings. They're almost no calories and I love them. I have one order that evening and another the next day, plus some chicken dumplings.

Otherwise, pork lo mein is one of my favorites. The restaurant I order from sends a huge portion, so I have the leftovers for breakfast.
