We got an amazing delivery place in the area. I almost always go with the kind of standard noodles with chicken and vegetables that pretty much anywhere has, and if it's a special occaison some California roll sushi.

You make a whole meal out of egg rolls?

:shock:

There's a place here in Phoenix called New York Wok (funny huh?) that makes their egg roles about the size of half a large burrito.

Place in Northern RI here called Asia Grill, best Chinese Food me and my wife have ever found, and anyone I've referred there agrees. Its always tough ordering when everything is so good and I'm not restricted to the fail-safe favorites.

General Tso's is good anywhere but
Orange Beef is probably my favorite
Crab rangoons
Beef teriyaki
Hot and sour soup
Peking beef

Butterfly Shrimp with the bacon.

Roast pork with Mushrooms.

OR

Roast Pork Fried Rice or Lo Mein (one or the other).

OR

A smorgasbord of apps (Shrimp Toast, Spring Rolls, Beef on a Stick, Boneless BBQ Ribs, etc...).

Pretty much all of them always with a pt. of Hot & Sour Soup.

Gag! I wouldn't even feed that crap to my dogs. I don't believe in cannibalism.

One order cat-on-stick. :)


My go to for Chinese is diced chicken with cashews. I normally ask them to toss some hot red peppers into it for good measure.


Our local market believe it or not actually makes passably good sushi and rolls. Not top shelf by any stretch but well worth the money.

Sounds like you eat way too much Chinese takeout.

I guess I'm spoiled after having worked in Chinatown for several years, but I can't stand chinese takeout places. However, if it's the middle of the night, everything else is closed, I'm hungry and I have nothing to eat at home, it's Roast Pork Egg Foo Young

After all, if I'm going to buy food at an inauthentic chinese restaurant, I might as well get an inauthentic chinese dish
