I judge a Chinese takeout place on it's egg drop soup & fried rice.
Ideal order is from my favorite place currently is:
Large egg drop soup (32oz for $2)
Fried chicken wings (cheaper than an actual wing place and just as good without the sauce)
Beef Fried Rice
Chicken w/ Curry sauce (Beef & Broccoli or a very good General Tso's are a good sub)
