    Hi! I'm going out for a Chinese meal tomorrow night. Rather than order individual portions, my family tend to order loads of dishes for the middle to share.

    I'm planning on doing Easy Extra and then only eating free foods at dinner. I'm not sure how many syns to count for oil..would 10 be enough for the standard amnt of oil used in restaurants? Thanks in advance!

    Yes I would say 10 syns is more than enough. Just make sure to eat things like chicken in oyster or black bean sauce or seafood steamed with ginger with plain rice (special fried rice has a LOT of syns). I also get chinese greens as well.

    This SW article may help:

    A great appetiser that offers a fuller-sized starter for small-size Syns is hot and sour soup at only 5 Syns per serving!
    Chinese cuisine provides loads of meaty choices for an Original day! Tuck into a 160g serving of spare ribs (about 4 ribs) for 8½ Syns, or for just 4½ Syns* enjoy beef with mushrooms. There are chicken dishes galore with chicken in oyster sauce at 4½ Syns*, chicken and black bean sauce (5 Syns*) chicken and mushrooms (5½ Syns*). If you fancy rice with your Original dishes, 100g (about a medium portion) of boiled rice is only 6½ Syns!
    Rice and noodle dishes make excellent Green options. A serving of chicken chop suey with noodles is a fab 5½ Syns* while chicken chow mein is 7 Syns*. For a veggie option, stir-fried mixed vegetables are a sound 6½ Syns*. Top up with loads of Free boiled rice for a Chinese banquet!
    Fancy seeing the future? The future’s slim, with fortune cookies at around 2½ Syns each.
    *Per average take-away serving
    Hong Kong phooey…
    Watch out for dishes that include oil, batter and filo pastry (eg spring rolls, crispy duck, seaweed and prawn toast). Maximise your Free Food choices to really enjoy these appetisers!​
