Ordering in is well and good, but if you want to save money and satisfy your craving for delicious Chinese take-out menu classics, how about making it for yourself? Food cooked to piping hot perfection right in your own kitchen is going to taste a lot fresher and better than take out food sitting under a heat lamp, getting damp in its own steam. Pair crispy fried rice with savory Mongolian beef, or chicken lo mein with a side of crispy potstickers! Never settle for lukewarm cuisine again; make it fresh at home.
