What do you order when you eat Chinese?

  1. My family and I love Chinese but we're stuck in a rut; always ordering the same dishes. I know there are many different types of Chinese cuisine, but what do you order when you go to a Chinses restaurant, and where are you from?

    I am from Hawaii and here's some of my faves:

    All types of Dim Sum
    Shrimp Canton
    Pot Roast Pork with taro cake
    Cold Ginger Chicken
    Spicy Eggplant with Ginger Sauce
    Ma Po Tofu
    Peking Duck
    Salt and Pepper (shrimp, lobster)
    Clams/Crab with Black Bean Sauce
    Cake Noodle with Minute Chicken
    Ong Choy with Garlic Sauce

    Yummmm...wanting to have some Chinese tomorrow!
     
  2. Egg fried rice
    King Prawns in Black Bean Sauce
    Squid with salt and chilli

  6. My favorite is cake noodles!
     
  7. I always prefer just two things......Hot and Sour Soup and two Spring Rolls. I love the hot mustard too!
     
  8. Fried rice..and sesame chicken.
     
  9. I'm not that picky...I could eat plain steamed rice forever! But I'll get any noodle dishes, any steamed dishes, anything with duck (as long as it's upscale chinese, a lot of take out joints are pretty iffy with the duck!), spring rolls, that sort of thing. Usually no beef or pork dishes though, if I want to try beef dishes I'll nibble on SO's.
