The Chinese Eating Out Guide

08.11.2017

Below you will see our extensive ‘eating out’ guide. This is simply a rough guide as to which meal choices are to be avoided, savoured, or indulged in. We have concentrated on starters, mains and side dishes. This is because if you are choosing to have 2 courses, you should choose starter and main, rather than dessert. Sides can also be helpful in bulking out a main course with extra veggies and salad.  

Chinese meals can be very high in sugar as many dishes are served in a syrupy sauce. Avoid these sauces as they will hinder any weight loss, and cause havoc with your energy levels.
