Heating up food.. - June 15th 2009, 12:22 PM

ok guys, here's the thing: I LOVE chinese. I really really don't want to throw away the chinese food, because it will actually cause me pain, unless I really should.

Last night I was at a friends and we ordered Chinese ~ I got chicken and egg-fried rice. I thought I was hungrier than I actually turned out to be, and there was a fair amount left over. I popped the rest in the fridge for a bit while we went in to watch a movie, and about an hour later I headed home. I wrapped up the food and took it on the hour-long journey home in my bag, and I put it straight in the fridge when i got home.

So....would it be ok to heat up in the mocrowave? Or too dodgy? What do you guys think?

Re: Heating up food.. - June 15th 2009, 12:31 PM

so i'm really weird about re-heating rice......rice is one of those things you have to be SOO careful about there is some bugthing that lives in rice that means unless you cook it then cool it straight away and then reheat it so the whole thing is like super hot you shouldn't really eat day old rice......

that being said loads of people do, i just have hardcore issues with it as when i was about 3 my dad ate rice with the bug in it when in the far east and ended up in hospital on a drip

i suppose so long as you make sure that it is really really really hot then it should be fine

Ok, but what about the chicken? Do you think that would be a bit sketchy as well?
Thanks

Egg rolls, rice, those can be heated but chicken...that can be a bit hardcore man j.k

Yeah you can reheat all of those and it'd be fine. When ever we get Chinese at my house we usually get a lot and end up putting it in the fridge anyway, and eat it the next day and its fine, even my brother ate some of the orange chicken that was out all night which grosses me out but he's fine (wouldn't recommend it though LOL). So yeah it'd be alright, I love Chinese and hate throwing it out.

Personally, I wouldn't reheat the rice because I've had it drilled into me by my flat mate that unless you cool it straight away it's dodgy. As for the chicken, I [and again this is all what I would do personally] would feel fine re-heating and eating it.

Chinese food is NASTY when you nuke it in the microwave.

It should all be fine if you re heat it thoroughly.

I eat my leftover chinese food for breakfast all the time. Just heat it up for a minute or 2 it's fine. Chow mein does taste better cold though I find...

Lol what?

I rarely put cooked rice in the fridge right away- it's usually sitting out for half an hour or an hour. When I heat it up in the microwave (I definitely wouldn't say it's "really really really hot"), it's a little drier than the previous day, but it's fine. I've done this numerous times, and I haven't dropped dead, or even gotten sick because of the rice.

Thanks guys!! I actually heated it up yesterday for 5 mins and I'm still here so far, although it didn't taste very lovely to be honest.

For future reference, I would re-fry rice in a frying pan. Not reheat in a microwave. Personally, I think if there was any bug or bacteria in it, the frying pan would kill it, err, better? than the microwave would. But, That's just me, and I'm weird. :P
Plus, Re-frying it in a pan makes it taste better. xD
