It is best not to keep chinese food for more than 5 days in your fridge. This will help you preserve the flavors and prevent it from getting soggy.

Chinese food like fried rice, steamed dumplings, or noodles can stay fresh for up to 3 days on the countertop. It is recommended that you freeze any leftovers instead of keeping them in the fridge.

If you wish to freeze your leftovers, place them in a freezer-safe container and only thaw the amount that you need. This will help reduce the amount of food that gets soggy or overcooked.

When reheating your chinese food, do so over low heat to preserve the flavors and prevent it from getting soggy. If you wish to eat it cold, it is recommended that you eat it within 3 days.

Why I think it's best not to keep chinese food for more than 5 days in your fridge...

  1. It's easier to re-heat, this helps you prevent the food from getting soggy.

  2. it helps preserve the flavor, this makes chinese food healthier and tastier.

  3. It avoids reheating the same dish again and again, which will just make the flavors blend together.
