    Found a reasonable substitute over the years.

    4 Tbls Sugar
    6 Tbls White Wine Vinegar
    1 Tbls Soy
    Loads of Pineapple Juice
    Cornflour to thicken.

    Lol, interesting and sounds good! However, I suspect that there are other types of S&S dishes, from the likes of Hong Kong, which look more 'typical' in colour [I believe that some food colouring is used in restaurants in China], but which are just as authentic, as Chinese food is very regional, but then I'm not an expert

    Absolutely, this one is my personal preference though. Easy to make and I donít lose any sleep over it (which generally happens to me with a lot of Chinese takeaways.

    Ah, the old MSG, thing... Yeah I know what you mean. Fortunately, that doesn't seem to affect me, but then I don't have Chinese takeaways very often, plus tend not to eat late at night. I rarely eat anything past 7pm in the evening, other than perhaps a bit of fruit.

    This might just be the best thing I have eaten all year.

    Mushrooms and chorizo in yellow pepper and leak all smothered in extra virgin olive oil and Piri Piri sauce.

    Ray wing in white wine, lemon, a few capers, olive oil and butter. Lots of salt and pepper.

    Everything just tasted fantastic. Pan deglaze with white wine really helped it along.

    Just made the veg up, but the ray wing recipe is pretty common. Just don't use too many capers, or you'll wreck it with too strong a caper flavour.

    I usually do skate wing but this ray wing was superb.

    Granted it doesn't look great.

    Bet that tasted fab. Nice choice!

    Chorizo arguably (definitely) overcooked but it went nicely chewy and drenched the mushroom with chorizo juice. Fab.
