Chopstick food, chopstick dining

10 thoughts on “what do u think of chinese food?”

  1. I’m hungry an hour later.

    But, seriously, I like Chinese food. My favorite is War Won Ton soup, so good.

  2. I really like it. I usually use chopsticks. I like the meat and vegetable dishes best, especially the spicier ones.

    I prefer steamed rice to fried. Egg rolls or spring rolls are nice, especially when you dip them in spicy mustard.

    When I go to a buffet I like to sample different things, especially dishes I haven’t tried before. I also like Japanese and some Vietnamese foods.

  3. Apart from being tasty and delicious, there are a lot of health benefits of eating Chinese foods.

    The Powerful Health Benefits of Chinese Food

    Every once in a while, you see something that seems to contradict something that you “know” to be true.

    An example being people who eat fatty, high-calorie foods living to be 100 years old.

    But yes, many folks chow down on pork, fat, meat, and even starches like rice .. and they don’t drink a ton of water every day.. yet they still live to be 100 (or close to it) in great health.

    Everything we’ve heard is that fat is bad, starch is bad, meat is bad, not enough water is bad.

    At my last j-o-b, I was sitting down a lot. I went to the water fountain about 5 times a day to refill my water bottle. In other words, I drank a lot of water.

    Now, you’d think that me drinking all that water would make me feel like a million bucks.

    But at the end of the day, I felt tired and hungry.

    Why? I think it was two things..

    1. I hated the job
    2. TOO much water!

    Your kidneys need to be cleaned out, but unless you have a lot of funky stuff in your blood, you don’t need to guzzle down water. Leave some for the fish in the sea.

    Now, that doesn’t mean don’t drink any water. And it definitely does not mean that you should choose soda or milk or juice instead. Bad, bad, bad idea!

    The late Dr. Atkins said that thirst is a sign of dehydration. If you’re thirsty, you’re not in the habit of drinking enough agua.

    You should never get to the point where you say, “I’m thirsty.” If you do, then you’re either not drinking enough of the right stuff, or you’re drinking too much of the wrong stuff (i.e. coffee, soda, black tea, juice, name-your-poison).

    Alright, so now that I’ve listed the evil beverages you should take it easy on, here’s a list of what you’d be wise to put into your belly:

    * Green or white tea
    * Water (beware of the bottled stuff with potassium chloride)
    * Unsweetened or lightly sweetened soy milk
    * Herbal drinks (check for side-effects with medication)Okay, so what does this have to do with Chinese food?

    Today I went to one of my favorite Chinese buffets on the poor side of town. Had a lot of chicken, pork, beef, vegetables, some fruit, and even crab rangoon, which is cream cheese wrapped in a fried shell.

    Yes, it was a very fatty lunch. Also a very high protein lunch. And the great thing about fat is that it satisfies the appetite.

    When I ate dinner this evening, I left half of it on the plate. I was still full from lunch. From one plate at the $ 6 Chinese buffet.

    Hey, like I said, it’s my favorite Chinese buffet. I highly recommend finding your favorite and going there often. You might be surprised at how much better you feel after eating a nice big plate of chicken and pork.

    Ah, one other thing I forgot to mention. After I got home, I went for a slow walk around the neighborhood.

    It is a very, very, very wise thing to take a slow stroll after you eat. It jumpstarts your metabolism so your food doesn’t just sit in your stomach all day, plus it helps digestion immensely.

    To wrap it up:

    * Drink more green or white tea
    * Have some pork and chicken at your favorite Chinese place, and
    * Walk after you eat a big meal

    Try it for a day or so and see if you don’t feel the difference.

    Evidence supporting the health benefits of a Chinese diet can be found both in traditional Oriental medicine and the modern medical community.

    The Miracle of Green Tea

    “Better to be deprived of food for three days, than tea for one.” (Ancient Chinese Proverb)

    There is also research indicating that drinking green tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

    To sum up, here are just a few medical conditions in which drinking green tea is reputed to be helpful:

    – cancer
    – rheumatoid arthritis
    – high cholesterol levels
    – cariovascular disease
    – infection
    – impaired immune function

    What makes green tea so special?

    The secret of green tea lies in the fact it is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

    Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay!

  4. The “not-real-Chinese-food” aka Panda Express, Pick up Stix, etc. is disgusting. Also, real chinese food is way too greasy and salty for me… I mean, I know people find it absolutely phenomenal. I’m sure it is! It just doesn’t fit my tastebuds very well ):

  5. It depends on where you eat them, but those American restaurants usually aren’t very Chinese at all, they have been modified to fit western taste buds. We don’t actually have fortune cookies, but I have to admit they taste really good!

    I personally love making my own dimsum, dumplings, noodles, fried rice, omelettes, etc.

  6. love it and it was interesting when i went to china the food was altogether different to what you get in the ‘chinese’ restaurants but i still loved it.

  7. I love Chinese and other Asian foods, but with the exception of Indian food cooked by a Pakistani friend and some egg rolls made by the parent of a Vietnamese student at the school where I worked, I’m not sure I’ve ever had any authentic Asian dishes. Still, authentic or not, I love Chinese food and will continue to have it often.
