Probably going to grab some take-out on the way home, and instead of actually doing work, I thought I'd see what kind of chinese dishes you aficionados (read: fat-asses) like.

I may be adventurous and try something from the Thai Place, but I think I'll save that for next weekend.

Not that I don't enjoy spicy food in theory, but my tongue doesn't usually like it. I get this lovely (and painful) swelling. So I try to stay away from really hot food. So when I eat thai, for instance, it's always mild.

The hot n spicy chicken I have isn't hot at all. Just warmer than anything else. Pretty mild, IMO. Actually, sesame chicken sounds good, too. It's a bit sweet, but not too much.

I had a yogurt for lunch. I need to stop thinking about this.

Oh, and an egg roll with hot mustard.

Chinese and Thai are at their best with spicy dishes. Kung Pao, General Tso, Laab Gai.

What you're asking is akin for asking for BBQ recommendations, but you don't like anything slow smoked.

Thai can be mild if you request it that way. They typically ask you what level you want when you order (mild, medium, hot, thai hot). And they will do middle levels, like "medium-mild" or "medium-hot" (but the chick taking the order doesn't speaka much engwish, so I try to keep it as simple as possible)

Its tough with Thai though, in terms of the levels of spice. If I go to the one downtown, I always got "hot". The one here in OP, I always get "medium", they blow your doors off, but even then its occassionally too mild or hot.

I know the girls in the office have gotten Thai for lunch because they are talking across the office "mine's too hot", "mine's too mild".

Yeah, you're right; they do. You have to REALLY read the menu and ask questions, or you'll get something pretty yuk.

The dish I like is rice, green peppers, onions, sprouts, and beef(or pork). They put a Thai curry sauce on the bottom, and you just put some hot red mustard on top, and kind of mix it all around.

Korean- Daeji Bulgogi (barbecue pork) very spicy with fermented beans/chili
Vietnamese- Pho soup with wafer thin filet mignon. the steak is served raw and gets cooked by the broth.
Laotian- Beef Heaven, its like beef jerky but is very fatty. can be sun dried or deep fried.

Back years ago when I lived in Baltimore I would sometimes make about a 15 mile drive past many Chinese restaurants to get to a place called Uncle Lee's. The object of those journies was a spicy dish of noodles in a peanut and cucumber sauce. With the cool of the cucumbers and the spice of the chilies and the sweet of the peanut butter, all blended into the wide noodles which acted as there conduit.....I'm telling you, it was like a State Fair for the palate.

I have tried this dish in many Chinese restaurants across the country and have never had it as good as Uncle Lee's. Some, in fact, were just plain bad. I'll keep trying, but I'm probably doomed to a future of Chinese noodle disappointment.

Authentic Thai doesn't use peanut sauces. They do sprinkle crushed peanuts on a lot of dishes, though.

This blog has a lot of authentic recipes and videos of street vendors in Bangkok, Thailand. I find it pretty interesting, especially compared to how you usually see the food here.

Yep. Agreed. Good thai food doesn't use peanut sauces. Bad representation of Thai food in the states.
