WHITE CHINESE DISHES, RANKED

Something something authenticity something definitions something drawing lines something something subjectivity displacement culture etc
  1. 1.
    Anything without MSG LOL
    Best thing about white Chinese restaurants. Psst: some of them are lying
  2. 2.
    Fortune cookies
    Allows me to continue recent habit of paying actual money to be told vague things about my future which I take on board with questionably wavering degrees of irony
  3. 3.
    Egg fried rice
    The egg doesn't really serve much purpose, so this is just fried rice, which is why it's ok
  4. 4.
    Prawn toast
    Could be worse?!?
  5. 5.
    Everything else
    Note: brief internet search revealed I have yet to try most white Chinese dishes. So if you came here for an informative list, now would be a good time to sidle out.
  6. 6.
    SWEET AND SOUR PORK/CHICKEN
    THIS IS THE WORST and if you had to watch it being cooked in vast quantities you would agree (recall Dulwich year 9 trip to Henan)
