Preparing to eat out with friends tomorrow..

Hi Everyone,

The OH and I have a meal arranged for tomorrow night with friends and I really want to be as prepared as I can so... I've checked thier menu on line today and the safest thing I can find to eat is Salmon (menu says in black bean sauce). I've called the restaurant and they have said they can steam it, put the sauce on the side and steam me some vegetables to go with it. I think this is a pretty safe option however I've looked on syns online and blue dragon black bean sauce is 9 syns for 200ml. Do you think I could have a little of this or would it be made a lot differently in a restaurant? to be a pain but I'm not very good with chinese as it's not my food of choice. I've attached the menu incase you ladies have a better suggestion?

Thanks as always!


PS: Sorry if I'm making anyone salavate! lol

Hi there

I have just looked in the handbook and
beef/chicken in black bean sauce is showing as 5syns on red for a 360g takeaway portion and I bet it will be closer to the restaurant version than the blue dragon version!, so I think that you will be fine to have some with your salmon -which sounds lovely by the way :D
Hope you enjoy it
Thanks! I think I will have a little black bean sauce with it, I reckon if I allow 5 syns that should be ok? I'm only going to literally wet my salmon with it. As far as calling the restaurant, they did get slightly annoyed when I asked them if I could steam this and steam that etc but hey, I'm paying for it so why not!


likes to eat!
I think it is totally fantastic that you have phoned the place and asked all the questions first.

I am also doing original (started on Extra Easy), but we are going out for a meal tomorrow night to the local indian for my hubby's birthday, so I am going to do an EE day, so I can have my lamb roghan josh - 6 syns and some rice.

Due to having a little one we don;t get to go out very often so I plan on enjoying it.

Have a fabulous night, you are doing so well!!! ;)
