There are many icky Chinese restaurants in the world. However, some of them are definitely worse than others. We ranked of the most unhealthy Chinese food from a new report by Men’s Health and Fitness magazine—so you can be sure not to eat these meals on your next outing!

  1. Rotten Egg Fried Rice

The first on the list has to be fried rice. And it's not just any fried rice, though. This is the kind of fried rice you get when a raw egg sits in it while it cooks. You have to wonder how the egg got into the rice in the first place, and you probably shouldn't wonder. Fried rice is not a pretty food.

  1. Fish Sticks

Next up is fish sticks. How did these get on this list? Because they're fried, so they're going to be fatty. And while fishsticks are a regular snack for kids (and toddlers), they should also be avoided by adults, who are more likely to have severe heart and/or liver disease because of their high fat intake.

  1. Sweet and Sour Pork

Chinese food is known for its authentic sweet and sour pork, which is usually coated in different sauces and fried. The coating is often made from wheat flour, and the Chinese government has even been trying to lower the amount of wheat flour used in the food.

  1. Pizza in a Pan

The next worst Chinese food is actually pizza. But it's not what you think: it's an actual pizza in a pan that never seems to cook completely. The result? A weird, squishy, doughy pizza that you're better off not eating.

  1. Prawn Crackers

Prawn crackers are just your average prawn crackers—except that their ingredients include whiting fish, which is the fish you think of when you think "worst food in the world." The prawn crackers aren't finished cooking when they're served to you, so each one is a different color.

  1. Deep Fried Moo Goo Gai Pan

Moo goo gai pan is a classic Chinese food, but it's also often battered and deep fried, which means it's probably not great for you. Now, the good news is that moo goo gai pan is vegetarian, so it might be a decent option if you're looking to keep meat out of your diet—but that doesn't make up for its high fat content.
