Wow what info. Didn’t know all this.
Great info! Thanks!
I guess Chinese will have to be a special treat like maybe twice a year.
Just about everything at a Chinese restaurant is full of fat, salt and sugar. Best to make it at home, ingredients are now readily available.
I will keep all of this information in mind.
Once I discovered Nepali food, I've been hooked
I think the bottom line is you pretty much cannot eat at a Chinese restaurant :-(
I prefer a Mongolian Grill restaurant. I can choose my own items and request they cook it with garlic water. If we do a traditional Chinese restaurant, I get a veggie Moo Goo Gai Pan or Veggie Chow Yuk (large cut veggies).
Unfortunately this article doesn't give any portion size indicators for the main dishes it lists...like the Lemon Chicken. Yes a whole plate might be 1300 calories; but a few tablespoonfuls from a Buffet or Family Style certainly isn't! So I disagree with some of the article's "tips" We almost always order family style....skip the rice/fried rice....and enjoy small portions of several dishes....Something like Broccoli and Beef is really nice, or SnowPeas and Shrimp....
