Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Jenn Wohletz recently served up her list of "Five restaurant leftovers you should not eat the next day." No one would quibble with her inclusion of sushi -- but her name-check of Chinese food left readers hungry for an explanation.

Says BrianMartinez:

I would agree that leftover Chinese food from one of those "buck-a-scoop" places should not be eaten the next day...probably because it was already a day old when it was served.

Aside from that, though, you're full of chop suey. Leftover Chinese makes for an awesome lunch the next day.

Do you take home leftover Chinese food? What leftovers will you always leave on the table? Post your thoughts below -- and read Jenn's original five worst leftovers list here.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
