A plate featuring steamed meat dumplings, spring rolls,  sweet and sour pork, orange beef, General Tso's chicken, Szechuan shrimp, eggplant in garlic sauce, and combination fried rice are arranged on a plate Tuesday in Washington. The typical Chinese restaurant menu is a sea of nutritional no-nos, a consumer group has found. A plate of General Tso's chicken, for example, is loaded with about 40 percent more sodium and more than half the calories an average adult needs for an entire day.
