I have been a Chinese food addict for years. I remember the first time I went to a Chinese restaurant. I was about 11 years old and it was me, my mum, her friend and her daughter.
I thought it was food heaven. The starter of a mixture of tasty Chinese food, the crispy duck and pancakes and of course the main of sweet and sour chicken balls. Clearly I had gone (with some help choosing from my mum) with the unhealthy options.
But who cares it tasted delicious.
After that I would go to the Chinese takeaway on the next street from my house, with some money from my dad if my parents were going to be out for the evening. I would always have some chips with prawn crackers and sweet and sour sauce and thought it was delicious.
Then I was pleased to discover that my small little quaint town was going to be adding a Chinese Buffet. It was the complete wow factor and I was finally going to be getting variety and I could eat as much as I wanted. I was also getting a lot of exercise at the time so I did not have to worry about weight gain.
I would have gone on a 4 mile walk and would then enjoy a super tasty Chinese buffet. Then when we moved to Portugal it was the same thing and we looked forward to a Chinese at the shopping centre when we had some free time.
Plus compared to eating at a Chinese restaurant it is so cheap!
We also like to have Chinese meals whenever we can at home and one of our favourites is to have Chinese kebabs. They are full of flavour and make a perfect Saturday night supper.
