What is your favourite chinese takeaway option?

In the takeaway just now, there must have been 200 options. We always choose the same 2:

Beef & green peppers with black bean sauce, and
Crispy chilli chicken.

A couple of other options had been amended by pen:

beef & tomato was changed to "beef and tomato with eggs" which sounded a bit rank tbh.

Last night I had a chicken curry and chips. Love a foo Yung with curry sauce and chips, and deep fried crispy beef with a plain chow mein. I also love crispy seaweed and crispy salt and pepper wings.
I love a Chinese takeaway but only have one once every few months these days due to the fat content ☹️
