Do you know how to cook Chinese food or do you just eat it at restaurants?

Yes, I do know how to cook Chinese.. And it's not too bad tasting.. some of it taste pretty good.. I'd rather cook at home rather than eating the restaurants because most of the time, they put it msg, which is really bad..

Ah, I don't really worry about msg, but restaurants do get expensive to go to often. I feel like that's what I spend most of my money on!

chinese food doesn't need to be that expensive.. lol.. probably in the states it's really expensive, but where I live, you can get fried noodles for like US$1.50 or less... And if you order dishes to eat with rice, depending on what you order, it can be USD$15 for 4 people.. and not US$15 per person, but shared with all the 4 people.. LOL..

i know how to cook 2 or 3 chinese recipes. but it's still different if you dine at an authentic chinese restaurant. they have that unique aroma and taste that will keep you coming back. the mere mentions or thought of my fave chinese food makes me feel hungry and crave for one right now :D

I would but I can't even cook typical American foods! I mess up the simplest things sometimes...

I don't like a lot of chinese food. I can't cook any, and I'll only eat out at buffets where I can pick what I want to eat carefully.

Myself an indian, and i do cook chinese food, my kids love it. But after relocating and moving to a place with lots of chinese people, i came to know, that their cooking is quite different. What we have ,is termed as indo chinese, modification of chineses recipes, as per indian taste... I do have a cooking blog too, where you can see all those recipes...

Hmm that sounds really interesting. I really like both Chinese and Indian cooking so a combination of the two could be really good.

I am so bad at cooking. I never learned from my family so half of what I can cook is what my Chinese teacher taught me in high school, haha.

Yes, i like to cook chinese food. They are very delicious and easy to cook. Maybe because my mother had been cooking chinese food most of the time, so i had been used to it. Only, sometimes when i don't have much time to cook, then we will be eating outside at the restaurant. Well, chinese food is very delicious if you know how to add those ingredients...

I'm a Chinese and so yes, I know how to cook simple Chinese recipes. In fact, it is quite interesting to cook and the adventure of trying out new recipes is what cooking is all about. But for the more elaborate ones, we usually dine out. I've also learn to cook some `chinese confinement food' during my wife's delivery of our baby boy. Some of the recipes are available in my baby blog.

I've never tried cooking it but I do love to eat it. General Geo's chicken is a favorite along with Egg Drop soup, Beef and Broccoli, those sticks with meat on them, eggroles and more. Someday I might take the challenge and learn to cook it. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

HI Anna, Cooking for me is like a rocket science for me. I only can sit and eat the food. I like Chinese food but can't cook. Eating is good exercise for me .. LOL

Haha nah I can't even cook American/Western foods yet, so I think I'll just go to Chinese restaurants rather than teach myself to cook it!

I am not a Chinese but I can cook simple Chinese food. I learned to cook Chinese from my Chines neighbor who lives next door. I sometimes enjoy eating Chinese food at the restaurant in town...
