I just ordered Chinese as well this afternoon, from a new place that opened near me - a quart of their house fried rice. It's a meal in itself, and they thankfully don't skimp on the proteins, there's a lot of chicken, bright red char siu pork, and shrimp in it along with peas, carrots, bean sprouts and golden yellow rice.

My apartment is on the route home for the local hot dog vendor. He rolls his cart by my door on Fridays about 5 pm and sells me his unsold dogs for 50 cents. Thats including the bun and generous fixings and he wraps them in thin foil and I usually buy 10 or 20 and eat them over the next week. Jealous?

This Italian restaurant, which is not Olive Garden, serves “meat-based” Bolognese sauce with no meatballs. It comes in resealable plastic take-out containers that enable you to save it in the fridge. I know I’ve eaten it over at least a two week period, and it was still delicious. I don’t have it every night, as it is constipating.
R25, they are large servings. It cost $133, so you can imagine the serving size. I don’t eat much, actually, usually cereal to start the day and one other meal. I’m currently at my College weight, at the upper bound of the normal range! I ballooned up when I quit smoking 15 years ago, but I’ve since shed all that.
R29, food is one of the great joys of life. It’s also as primal an urge as sex and can be shared with friends, and appreciated by almost everybody. If you don’t enjoy it, you’re really missing out as surely as any incel.
My order looks just like this, though perhaps with a little less meat:

Hot dogs are a guilty pleasure of mine, but I couldn’t eat more than two at a time and don’t think they’d be any good when not fresh. They’re like Big Macs: delicious when you’re hungry and they’re hot, but rather repugnant when you’re full or they’re cold.

No, R41, the order was $133. When the restaurant sells as “one order” actually serves me at least three meals, so 4 orders means 12 meals, maybe more. God it’s good!

R34, the current anti-Asian (not just Chinese) hysteria in the USA is one reason that I've been buying lunch at Chinese restaurants more often than usual lately, to support them through this lean period. There is absolutely no reason to avoid restaurants outside of Asia that serve Chinese or Japanese or Korean or Thai food -- it reminds me of the early '80s when people thought that every waiter had AIDS and therefore stopped visiting restaurants altogether. It's just prejudice and it's stupid, so stop it!

I am insane. Plus add $17 for über.
I‘ve never used über for this restaurant before and wasn’t sure how it’d work. They don’t accept “über eats”, so I had to place the order and schedule the über separately, and hope that it would be ready, on schedule, which it was. Last time I picked-up the order and served it that night to family as I didn’t feel like BBQing. We were real active all day and it was the deed of coordinating all the food and then the clean-up that made me suggest the take-out. We are on the roof deck under the stars, with a view of the skyline.
R46, for Pete’s sake, it’s 12 meals! So it works out to more like $12.50 a serving, even with the über. And look at it, it’s delicious!

I used to enjoy going to a local Chinese place a couple times a year, maybe a little bit more frequently. Not gourmet at all, but a good place to meet up with friends and have a feast for not a lot of money. That is, until last month when we were seated nearish to the kitchen. The doors were propped open and I saw one of the cooks over a wok -- one of those huge, gas-fired ones. He dumped massive ladle after ladle of canola oil into a dish he was preparing and I pointed it out to the people at my table. We could not comprehend how much oil he was putting in there -- at least three cups. We watched as he emptied the wok onto a serving plate, handed it to a runner, who brought it directly to our table. It was the Singapore chow mein somebody ordered. Yuck.

R56, I feel the same. Sure there are unhealthy options on a typical Chinese takeout menu, but the ones near me offer healthier options as well such as "Steamed chicken with mixed vegetables" served with white rice and sauce on the side, for example. It's cooked fresh to order, with plenty of fresh vegetables.

It may not be the right or even nice thing to do but I'm not going near any Asian neighborhoods or restaurants. And since I don't like those healthier options I'll be better off since I order the very unhealthy things. That said I really don't have Chinese food more than about 3 times a year because what I order is so unhealthy. Besides, the only really good Chinese restaurant near me when out of business about 2 years ago and I've never found another that is close to being as good.
