Can you pour the red sauce slower? Yeah *licks lips* just like that.

I agree with Subby, that's just gross.

I just throw random foodstuffs in people's faces then take their wallets. No, wait. That's not Chinese takeout. That's a mugging. I mugged a bunch of people.

I love Chinese food. Farking LOVE it - eat it every other week at least, and it'd be more if my partner liked it more.

The other night, I got VIOLENTLY ill after eating some.

// yes, you can mess it up
// yes, I will be ordering from them again (this is the first time it's happened in the 6 months or so I've been ordering)
// in like a month after I can stand the sight of them sesame chickens again...

Making portions is fine, but let people drizzle or dip their own sauce.

That's some nasty looking takeout even before it hits the tray.

Was about to ask the same thing. That whole container is an abomination.

My go-to place serves traditional Szechuan, family style. Every entree and appetizer gets its own container, and then you're given more than enough containers of rice (they understand they each entree is 2-3 servings).

Ugh I did some 3rd party contractor work for one once.

The food looks disgusting. The clientele were every bit the pigs they resemble except for the few old people who I'm just assuming senility had firm hold on.

But back to the article, as everyone else, who the hell gets fries with Chinese take out?

But also sweet and sour sauce is the take out Chinese/ buffet equivalent of ketchup.

It's for children who like deep fried bland things topped with sugar. And she dumped it on everything.

There was a guy I know (knew? It was many years ago) who used to do that sort of thing with his food. When asked why, his standard reply was "It all gets mushed up in yer guts".
 
2021-04-22 5:18:26 PM  
Lord, our Chinese place in town is just as awful. They water down the sauce and then add too much.

Part of the charm (or ritual?) of Chinese Take Out Night was serving yourself from an assortment of pagoda-shaped boxes.

This just makes a mess (nobody's mentioning how much wound up on the floor) and an extra platter to wash.

ayup, what caffeine_addict ^^^said.

decades ago, sometimes I'd only get fries and wings and maybe fried skrimps. depends on your local joint, but I remember that the fries were phenomenal and so were the wings (larger than usual, super crispy skin with sort of a soy marinade)

I think it's just a business model? akin to the "Chinese" place across the street from us, which also serves: Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese dishes, and sushi. or those "pizza" places that also make every kind of grinder/hoagie/sub in the known universe, soups, salads, fried seafood, wraps, ...

Weird right? The best wings in my college town were at the Chinese buffet. Crispy, savory, not over breaded. Possibly the best I've ever had.

CSB: a group of us geology grad students hit the place up for an early dinner one Friday. The usual meal with a group of friends, until my guy gets a soft serve ice cream cone. Vanilla with sprinkles, and he proceeds to "mold" it into the shape of a stubby dong. We're all getting ready to bail when I noticed Drew standing there with his ice cream dick and I said "We can't leave, you forgot to spit on your hand!"

The girls gave me a wide berth afterwards IYKWIMAITYD.

/no they didn't

No, chips :-P

Most Chinese restaurants in the UK have a "European dishes" section on their menu, and that's where you find my favourite. I mean, I love duck with pancakes, cucumber and hoisin, I'll take your special curries that have all the meats, I've got spring rolls and sesame prawn toast coming out of my lugs.

But, in the European dishes section of a UK Chinese restaurant menu, you'll find the chicken Maryland. Yes, it's named after a US state, which just confuses matters further. But it's two chicken breast fillets, breaded or battered, a pineapple fritter, a banana fritter and some form of pork. Bacon, ham, maybe even a sausage. And it comes with chips, and if you get curry sauce to go with it, you've just made it even better.

I'd eat it because I'm not OCD so I don't get panic attacks when one food touches another food it's not "supposed to".

I ❤ Chinese food. It was much better than Cats

/I'm going to eat it again and again

I'm not a food separatist (see LL Cool J in Toys) but trying to make a Cobb salad equivalent to serve wet foods just seems... problematic

Yes, it all ends up in the same place, but that doesn't mean all flavors go well together

That said, if I was serving myself, I'd probably try curry over the French fries.  Or maybe dipping, so they didn't loose too much crunch before you ate it.  (But being takeout, the fries have likely steamed already)
