How to Reheat Chinese Food so It Tastes Delicious the Next Day, Fairbanks, Alaska

Your leftover Chinese food, when properly reheated, can make a delicious meal. Since it’s already been cooked, there is no need to worry about proper temperatures, but there are a few ways to ensure the taste and texture of each recipe are preserved during warming. Bamboo Panda is Fairbanks, AK’s favorite spot for Chinese cuisine and takeout. They explain the best techniques for reheating their dishes the next day. 

How to Reheat Chinese Food Leftovers 

1. The Stovetop Method

Chinese FoodWhen you want to quickly warm up fried rice, noodles, meats, and vegetables, the stovetop method is best. Place a wok or large frying pan over medium heat and add a teaspoon of your favorite cooking oil. When the pan is warm, toss your leftovers, adding fresh ingredients if you wish. Stir for two or three minutes until the food is warm, and then remove it from the heat. 

2. The Right Way to Microwave

If you don’t have access to a stovetop, you can microwave your Chinese food. Meat and breaded items don’t fare as well with this method, but other recipes will be fine. Place your dish in a shallow bowl or plate, and cover it with a moist paper towel. Set the microwave to use 50% of its power and run it for one minute. Stir your food, and repeat these steps as needed until you reach the desired temperature.

3. Oven Technique

When you want to heat fried items, like egg rolls, wontons, or meat dishes, using an oven will best preserve their crispy texture. Place the food on a baking sheet and warm it on low heat. If you’re reheating rice or noodle dishes, use a casserole pan and a lid.

Now you don’t have to waste your next generous portion of Chinese food from Bamboo Panda. Simply wrap up your leftovers and take them home to enjoy the next day, using one of the above methods.
