    Hello
    I am going out for a chinese on Saturday night and am determined to stick to EE plan! I am thinking of having:

    Hot and Sour soup - 5.5 syns
    Boiled rice - free (it also says egg fried rice is free on EE - is this right??)
    Chinese curry - I think this should be a good choice as it's mainly chicken, veg and a non-greasy curry sauce. Does anyone know the approx syn count?

    Thanks for your help. Jane x

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][/FONT]Sorry, I can't find the syns for the curry, but boiled rice is free and a good choice. I don't know where you saw that egg fried rice is free on EE. According to the website

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] Basic/Non Branded Foods Chinese Restaurant, Rice, fried, average portion 300g serving
    [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] [​IMG] 4 Syns on Extra Easy [​IMG] Original 21½ Syns [​IMG] Green 4 Syns

    The above is syns for re-creating a Chinese meal at home, not takeaway or sit-in :) xx

    Edit to say, personally the curry would be last on my list, the amount of oil used in curry is huge! I would pick a chow mein or something with a light soy sauce type with boiled rice xx

    Hi Stefanie, it was in the section 'Eating Out - Chinese' so all very confusing! I didn't realise there was a lot of oil used to make the curry. I will keep looking through until I find something acceptable - I think Beef in mushrooms looks like a good choice. I like the spicy ones like Beef or chicken Schezwan (sp?) so will look in to that. I will go through the other threads on the site and have a good look on the syns calculator. Thanks for your help xx

    Beef in Black bean sauce is one of your best bets at 5.5, or beef in mushrooms 4.5 - personally think thats a little boring though with boiled rice. Chow meins are about 6.5-8.5 sorry this is off the top of my head!!
