Individually-Packaged Chinese Meals Catering

Imagine if you will... it’s Friday night. You don't want to cook and you had pizza for lunch. What are you ordering? We both know you just said, “Chinese” to yourself! There are approximately 40,000 Chinese restaurants in the United States- that’s more than all the McDonald’s locations in the whole world. And with so many popular dishes like egg rolls, pork fried rice and pan-fried dumplings, it’s no surprise. With so many combinations of noodles, proteins and vegetables, Chinese cuisine is a great option for catered events because it will appeal to people with different dietary needs and tastes.

Our Menus

At CaterCow, we design our menus to make things easy for you. All our menus are tailored to allow one person to easily order for themselves and their team. We also provide the option to send out a poll with your selections and people can order off of that, as well as select custom options. This way, everyone in your team can have the food they want and you can ensure dietary needs are met. Chinese cuisine makes it even more simple by offering many options so there’s something for everyone.

Best Practices and Tips when Ordering Individually-Packaged Chinese Meals

How Many Meals Should I Order?

How Many Meals Should I Order?

Even though these meals are individually packaged, we recommend a couple of extra meals! You never know who might show up unannounced at the office. You can add those extra meals at the checkout page before you place an order even if you use a group order poll!

Can I Accommodate Gluten-Free Individuals?

Can I Accommodate Gluten-Free Individuals?

Many of these meals are not gluten-free as soy sauce is wheat-based, unless they use gluten-free soy sauce. This also applies to anything that’s breaded, like General Tso’s, Orange Chicken and other fried foods. Look for the (GF) indicator next to a dish to know if it is gluten-free.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is MSG? Is it unsafe?

...more MSG is short for monosodium glutamate. It’s a common flavor enhancer made by fermenting starch like sugar cane, beets and molasses. MSG is used to give food an umami taste — the fifth basic taste alongside sweet, sour, salty and bitter. MSG used to be considered a toxic additive, but current evidence and health authorities agree that it’s safe to eat.

Are there eggs in egg rolls?

...more A common misconception is that egg rolls contain eggs. Usually they don't, but be careful that spring rolls might have an egg wash on the wrapper.

What goes well with a Chinese cuisine?

...more Sides like spring rolls and dumplings (veggie is usually most safe, although traditionally pork is the primary ingredient!) are a perfect complement for Chinese cuisine. And don’t forget the fortune cookies!

Are there vegan and vegetarian options for individually-packaged Chinese meals?

...more Sure! Check out the (V) or (VG) designation to see which items are vegan or vegetarian but remember tofu isn’t your only option. Vegan and vegetarian options include sautéed string beans and garlic eggplant.
