You’d think ordering Chinese food would be easy. Rice, vegetables, meat, simple right? Not so much, there are several ingredients in the sauce that are tough to navigate. Especially in Chin-glish over the phone. While Chin-glish wasn’t the challenge ordering from China Too who delivers within the downtown San Diego area the fact that all, I mean all even the scallops, meat is pre-dusted in wheat flour is. I was grateful there was someone helpful on the other line. Here’s the safe list it’s small but hey they deliver:

-Vegetable and tofu dishes in oyster sauce

-Vegetable soup

Specify no flour, food starch (corn starch is fine), or soy sauce. I also exclude MSG. It’s unconfirmed whether or not MSG is gluten free but it causes sensitivity for many people and there is a lot of research showing it’s just no good for you.
