This week, a theme: Chinese!
#1. Do you prefer to eat Chinese food in the restaurant or to have it delivered?
At the restaurant. We lived two doors down from a Chinese restaurant for a few years and as good as the food was, the odor of the kitchen was enough to make me not want to bring it in my house ever again after we moved. That also coincided with going to one of the very best Chinese restaurants in the country, and really, it was never quite the same for me again. Worth it, but alas, never quite the same.
#2. Do you prefer wonton or egg drop soup?
Wonton. By a mile. I love dumplings in general, by themselves, in soup...doesn't matter.
#3. What flavor fried rice is your favorite?
I like veggie, really. I never quite trust the shrimp or pork.
#4. Describe your favorite item on the Chinese food menu.
For nostalgia? Sweet and sour shrimp. For my tastes now? I love cashew chicken, though I often end up ordering mu shu veggies (veggies in a savory hoisin-based brown sauce, served with little "pancakes" that you make a burrito/taco thing out of) because it's "safe." I almost always like it. But my favorite items remain the veggie egg roll and those little fried noodle thingees that come on the table, dipped in duck sauce.
And I'd be remiss to not mention that Thai has surpassed Chinese as our favorite Asian food in the house. It has a different set of flavors that seem a little brighter to me.
