I like to party and have a good time...

Every so often, I meet up with friends. One thing leads to another and pretty soon we're saying "Oh my god, we're so drunk... lets get some chinese food".

We go to a hole-in-the wall chinese restaurant. Fried rice is somewhere between $4 and $11. The meat menu items are somewhere between $4-$12 depending on time of day, and inclusion of shrimp. The noodle menu is somewhere between the two. They mostly want us to leave, so the only thing I can say about the atmosphere is "hostile". A lot of that is our doing. But man is that food good.
Its awesome. Of course its awesome, just like white castle in that same state. But white castle sucks when you're sober. I recently had the same hole-in-the-wall chinese food out of necessity while sober, and it was REALLY REALLY good. I mean I know I'll end up losing my shape if I eat like this all the time, but it was REALLY good. I'm headed over there now to get an order of shrimp fried rice just to find out how its made. I'm going to look through the cash register area to the kitchen and find out what kinds of ambrosia they use to cook these meals. It probably won't work, but thats how badly I want this.
One of my "bucket list" items is to eat everything on that sweet banquet of a menu taped unevenly on the wall starting with the more popular stuff...I think this qualifies.
So give me your recipes. Hole-in-the-wall chinese food recipes.
I'll be making it at home, and just realized I have no wok. I will spend 2 hours researching and obtaining a really good wok to cook hole-in-the-wall chinese food recipes. Today. That's how much I want to do this. Tell me what to get if its a specialized food or kitchen item. Otherwise just tell me how to recreate this food at home. Maybe I'll get two shrimp fried rice orders. One for research, the other for eating. Oh yeah, I'll eat them both. I want this bad.
