    Hi everyone!

    I've got some friends over tonight who are adamant that they want a takeaway, & I figure Chinese is probably the best of a bad bunch? Can anyone tell me what the lowest pp foods are?

    Thanks in advance!! x

    i think the chicken one people are classing as 12pp, therefore guessing beef will be 14 pp as its always higher

    Rice is 1pp per 10g dried weight, not sure how that would convert though! Possibly 9 or 10pp thinking about the quantity...

    Here's what I've got so far... should help!

    Chinese...
    Beef with green pepper in black bean sauce = 12 pp
    Boiled rice = 12 pp
    Char Sui Pork = 11 pp
    Chicken chow mein = 9 pp
    Chicken & cashew nuts = 9 pp
    Chicken in black bean Sauce = 11 pp
    Chicken with mushroom = 8 pp
    Chicken and sweetcorn soup = 6 pp
    Chicken Balls (portion of 8) = 13 pp
    Chips - half bag (210g) = 14 pp
    Chips point at 24pp for a whole bag,
    I weigh mine out 210g = 14 pp, 400/420g = 26/27 pp
    Curry Sauce (per tub) = 8 pp
    Egg fried rice = 16 pp
    Fortune Cookies (per cookie) = 2 pp
    Hot and Sour Soup = 4 pp
    Lemon chicken = 10 pp
    Lychees (6) = 0 pp
    Mushroom Chow Mein = 6 pp
    Mushroom Foo Yung = 6 pp
    Mixed veg in oyster sauce = 6 pp
    Prawn crackers = 9 pp (average portion)
    Roast Pork Cantonese Style = 10 pp
    Seaweed (deep fried) = 9 pp
    Sesame prawn toasts = 3 pp (each)
    Special chow mein = 9 pp
    Special fried rice = 23 pp
    Spring rolls = 9 pp (each)
    Sweet and sour chicken (balls or peking style) = 13 pp
    Szechuan Prawn with Vegetables = 12 pp
    Toffee Banana = 15 pp (I KNOW!!!!)
    Vegetable Curry = 8 pp

    Be very careful with Chinese values, do not treat them like Mcdonalds points which are standard sizes. e.g. in my local Chinese I would get 10 chicken balls, each at least twice the size as a Mcdonalds chicken nugget, and then with sweet and sour sauce on top there is no way they are 13pp if 9 nuggets are 11pp.

    A special chow mein in one chinese could be approx 850g and serve 2, so it can't be the same value as a single spring roll! let common sense prevail!!

    Hi misteeq_sis - chicken in mushroom is 8pp so I'd say 10, then the other day I had mini spring rolls, did a bit of googling & settled for 4pp each. Enjoy!
