I'm starving, and I've been busting my ass all day working. I don't have anything really to eat so I'm gonna order some chinese. I always get basically the same thing, General Tso's Chicken and Hot & Sour soup. I'd like to order something new but chinese doesn't seem like it rewards ignorant white men who venture blindly now does it. So what do you guys get? Please give a description because just saying "egg foo young" means nothing to me.

I like Chicken Fried Rice, sometimes I get some Egg FLower (or is it drop?) Soup to go with it.
And depending on the quality of the Beef, Beef and BRoccoli is good.

I've always wondered, what exactly is in egg drop soup? Is it just boiled egg?

Mothers chicken (similar to sesame chicken, but 10x better. I have only seen it at the local fancy chinese place) and BBQ pork end cuts. Sometimes I will get potstickers instead of the BBQ pork.

Broth, usually chicken, crack the egg over the hot broth, drop the innards into the broth and stir.

I usually don't get it unless it is fresh. Something about egg soup being left out on a buffet all day that doesnt jive with me. I don't know if it is the awful smell or the super thick film it develops on top of it after a while.

I always order the same thing from the totally awesome Chinese restaurant near my house. Wonton soup, shrimp in hot garlic sauce, sweet and sour pork, fried rice, and Dr. Pepper in the can. Usually if I call it in they say, "oh, is you! Yes, you come over, five minutes now, we have ready for you!"

If I'm in the area already, I'll just make the call while browsing the used book store next door for more of the out of print or hard to find sci-fi I like.

The only way that location could be any cooler is if they had a gun store on the other side of the restaurant.

I like to try some different stuff.

On a Mei Fun (thin rice noodles) kick--usually get the combo. Have had the Curry type (a bit hot).

Like won ton soup.

Beef & Brocolli, General Tso's, are all pretty good.

AFARR

Like the Mu-Shu stuff also, but gives me the Sh*ts (come to think of it, most Chinese does!!).

Mongolian Beef.


If you're ever in the Fiarbanks/North Pole area, go to Pagoda. Best mongolian beef in existence.

We always order Chicken and Broccoli with BROWN sauce. Most Chinese restaurants use some tasteless clear broth in the chicken and broccoli. Get the brown sauce with it next time, it is much tastier.

And don't forget the General Tso Chicken....

This whole thread is making me hungry

I usually get chicken with mixed vegetables and a couple of egg rolls. And sometimes I get the shits!

You have to be adventurous. Order whatever you usually order, and order something else off the menu. If you like both dinners, just refrigerate what you don't eat and use as leftovers. If you don't like the new dish you ordered, flush it and eat your usual meal.

I’m fond of Thai food... Never get Chinese.

Pad Rad Pla and some cold Thai Tea is the absolute shizat for lunch.

Garlic Broccoli. I LOVE garlic broccoli.

The place that's only a few blocks from me (and takes orders over the internet!) makes a really good vegetarian Yu-Shiang Pork. Good vegetarian other stuff, too.
