Yes. I usually order crispy beef and vegetable spring rolls.
Yes. Kung Pao chicken or Lo Mein. And fried rice and egg rolls.
Now I'm hungry, you bastard
Anything with black bean sauce. If it is done right, it is delicious. Believe it or not, my favourite place to get it is in Vermont. I make a mean black bean sauce myself, btw.
Second choice is either Szechuan Beef or General Tso's shrimp.
Singapore Mei Fun.
I like Pei Wei and don't care who knows it.
R6 eats his mother's shit on shingles.
Salt-baked squid and velvet fried rice
Candied green jellyfish.
Yes, OP. Shrimp and broccoli with white rice is my go-to.
General Tsao's Chicken
Dog is only served in New York's finest Chinese restaurants.
It would solve the problem of the posters who hate NYC dog walkers who monopolize the sidewalks.
pork lo mein
My favorite comfort food is Yang Chow (with chicken, pork, veggies and shrimp) Fried Rice.
But there are fewer and fewer Chinese restaurants in NYC that know how to make this simple dish properly any more. More often than not the rice is white, clumpy and gooey.
Watching sodium intake so no Chinese food for me. It gives me panic attacks the sodium is so high.
Where in Vermont, R3? The Burlington area doesn't have good Chinese food.
Won Wel Huang Gei Guy is a favorite.
Clams with black bean sauce, kung pao shrimp, egg rolls.
Beef and broccoli, bitches!
Shredded beef Szechuan, scallion pancakes from Wok 88 on Third Avenue.
Panda North in Brattleboro, R18.
Cum Drop Soup. Daily special from horny chef.
Teriyaki Chicken or broccoli beef
Does anyone here know where I can get Wor Shu Opp in New York? It seems like no one makes it around here anymore.
Chicken lo mein
Pork fried rice
Shrimp egg rolls
Don't order the Pekingese Pu Pu Platter.
The fried Mystery Meat with that yummy Cherry Lifesaver sauce

r17, that's a classic reaction to MSG -- increased heart rate, shakes, etc..
But I agree that most Chinese restaurant food is too salty, in general.
Was raised in a heavily Chinese neighborhood in SF and will tell you that home-cooked Chinese food is wonderfully different from flashy, deep-fried take-out.
Get yourself a big wok, lots of bottled sauces,
sesame oil, a bunch of fresh veg, a bit of meat/protein, (you can use nuts and/or tofu) and go to town! Serve with brown steamed rice and you've got a healthful and cheap stir-fry diet.
Beef and Broccoli - I make my own. It's easy but requires advance prep.
And I know how to make the real version of General Tsao's Chicken. It's not the battered and fried version.
I like Moogoo Gai Pan with hot sauce. The big mushrooms and snow peas with bamboo shoots and carrot with pieces of white meat chicken in a chicken mushroom sauce is delightful. I add hot sauce to spice it up. Shrimp with Mushrooms Walnuts and snow peas is great too.
Mmm, candied meats.
I loved it when I was a kid; it was my introduction to "ethnic" cooking.
I can't eat it anymore, though. It's just slop, and not very good. I've moved on to Thai food, which, I think, is a little tastier and healthier.
20 year old egg with 2 day old chick
I like the non-saucy stuff, or at least the stuff without thick, dark sauce. I also don't like the stuff that is deep-fried. I like Szechaun Chicken, Hunan Chicken, and Sha Cha Chicken. I love hot and sour soup. I dont eat beef or pork.
I love Hot Pot, spicy and great for socializing with friends, because you can sit for hours around the pot and eat, talk, eat some more, talk some more.
Cum of Sum Yung Gai
[quote]Do you like Chinese food?
Yes, as a matter of fact, I do like my own pets. That's why I bought them!
I agree with R30. Chinese friends (and a roommate) taught me to cook homestyle Chinese.
It's not my favorite cuisine, but I occasionally get unfortunate cravings for sesame chicken and brown rice, pork dumplings and scallion pancakes.
Beef Chow Fun.
Chinese is kind of old hat. Thai not so much. Korean YES, Viet Namese YES. Funky freaky fusion, YES
Thai flavors are gross.
Chinese waiter told me menu may say "We Don't Use MSG," but it's always in the soup.
Mapo Doufu -- a Sichuan beancurd dish. It translates as Pockmarked Lady's Tofu. Yum.
Shark Fin Soup!
Cooked Alive Puppy!
Ground Up Tiger Penis!
Human Baby Soup!
Ever since I discovered Thai food, I find Chinese food in America to be greasy and overcooked.
moo goo gai pan
Agree with #49 Love Thai, Kprean and Japanese. Was served frogs several times in Cambodia-not doing that again! There is a great Dim Sum brunch place in DC.
There's too much greasy, oversalted Chinese food in America. It's hard to find the good stuff.
Crispy chicken. I'm not sure what the formal name is, but it's deep fried whole and served with salt for dipping. It's not greasy at all and succulent.
Kung Pao chicken or beef or shrimp or scallops, whichever I feel like, and Yu Xiang Eggplant. Hole-in-the-wall Chinese place near me makes the best Yu Xiang eggplant - it is never greasy. Also sometimes Mu Xiu Pork. And if I'm feeling very nostalgic for comfort food, Egg Fu Yung, although nobody makes it the way they did when I was a kid.
Lemon chicken on a bed of chicken chow mein. And/or beef & broccoli.
