It's obviously hot, judging by the condensation, so it isn't some form of salad, which it looks like! It's so long since I went to a Chinese take-away, the menu has probably completely changed. Carol

Haven't got a clue what it is but the condensation bubbles make an interesting pattern.

I love Chinese food, sesame chicken and General Tsao's chicken being my favorites.
This looks like it might be a stir fry dish using red peppers and celery.

Like it Dave - and it IS veggie - sweet and sour condensation is probably quite a cheap option !!!
Thanks Barbara and Dave for looking and leaving a comment

My first thought was--bell jar-- not so as the large image opened...

We have Chinese Take Outs-- They just fill a styrafoam box-- no pretty glass--

And when I got married in 1975,casserole dishes must have been a popular present.We got 17 !! Not like today when you can ask for a fitted kitchen from the list you get !!

I was going for a vege stir fry too, but how about veg chow mein? had a look at our locals menu; a number 19 is chicken and mushroom soup! Love the droplets and that blue curve.

I'd guess at vegetables, looks like green beans and carrots to me. Makes a great pattern pic, Helen.

I expect carrots are in there somewhere. There are always carrots. Smile

I remember my very first takeaway. It was in fact a chinese meal and my then new boyfriend said he'd order for me. We had something called "C". For years and years I thought C was a strange oriental dish!! I was a rather naive teenager.

Sorry Chris - NO carrots. Not really sure of the merits of my picture but has certainly evoked some interesting memories
