Good Things to Purchase from a Chinese Take Out Restaurant -- Golden Lake (Pond) at 22nd & Market Street

What to Eat in Chinese Take Out Places......

* Steamed snow peas with chicken (not fried).

* Steamed Broccoli with chicken (not fried).

* Zucchini, Snow Peas & Broccoli (not fried) or with chicken.

* Mixed Vegetables (Steamed, with ginger sauce.).

* Shrimp with Broccoli.

* Sweet  & Sour Chicken (with little sauce).

* Vegetable Fried Rice.

*Egg Drop Soup.

*Vegetable Egg Roll.

* Chicken Noodle Soup.

* Vegetable dumplings (steamed).

*Shrimp Egg Roll.

Comments: you can get any food if it is steamed. I, however stay away from pork and beef for health reasons. I also don't like certain sauces that are loaded with salt such as Hoysen sauce; Soy Sauce & regular stir fry sauce. Many Asian dishes can be prepared at home for much less cost. Invite friends over and have fun and make a night of in on a Friday night so you don't have to go to work in the morning. It is a lot less expensive than eating out or going to a night club. If you have high blood pressure,  Duck sauce does not have much salt in it. Mustard sauce also is low in salt. Stay away from Soy Sauce or Hoysen sauce. Usually you can buy these sauces in the supermarket. You will find that  Ginger sauces have less salt and are helpful for good health. Ask for Brown rice as opposed to regular white rice. Brown rice is better for you. At finer Asian restaurants you can ask for a low sodium / low salt dish like steamed vegetables in Duck Sauce. (Use less sauce). Shrimps should not be purchased if you have high cholesterol because they are high in cholesterol. Duck (not Duck sauce) is also high in fat.
