Who else here loves Chinese food? It's the only cuisine you can buy cheap and still have something that tastes good. Not many bachelors have a fridge without takeout containers.
My friends and I ordered some last night and as predicted, we had left overs.
HongKong Chow Mein, S&S Chicken, Lemon Beef, and rice (all white meat). $20 :)

haha, could of ordered it, but they do serve their dishes in a huge bowl, i would say approx. 12" wide depending on the dish. i had Sweet and Sour chicken (never had pineapple in the sauce before, but was delicious) and my gf had Kung Pow Chicken which was also very mouth watering, i will probably be going back there again sometime soon...

btw, that bowl includes the rice, veggies, and main dish all in one....


edit: here is a link to their site: http://www.bigbowl.com/index.htm

Those little paper boxes also turn out to become some of the best sources for future science experiments around. ;)

The best thing about Chinese food: You can get a few entrees and pass everything around for a group of people, whether you are eating out or having take-out. Everyone gets some of everything. Somehow, other types of food never seem as amenable to the group-eat system.

Eight of us ate at a Chinese restaurant yesterday and that's what we did. Yummmm.

When it comes to Asian food, Chinese is generally my third choice... first comes Thai, then Vietnamese. It's all good though. :D

Hrmm, I've never had Thai. Around North Potomac, its mostly Chinese anyway (some decent, some Americanized but overall still good); don't know many of the Vietnamese places to be honest--all I've had is pho -_-

But yeah, you have sit-down or dim-sum (e.g. New Fortune), heck you even got a Cantonese place down in Wheaton.

So yeah, by choice Chinese is easily #1.

I'm sorry, but your opinion is wrong. The correct order is Japanese, Thai, Chinese. We eat all three out, we bring all three home, and we make all three ourselves, so we must know best! :)

How about Korean bulgogi? I'd put that against a dan dan mein, or a pho, for a simple, tasty meal. It would be a close decision, though.

Another fan here. Beef lo mein and egg drop soup are my main frequencies. I love the occasional dumplings as well. But careful where you get those - some places make really BAD dumplings...
