Chinese Food : Your Christmas List

Even those of us with nowhere special to go on Christmas have a traditional meal cooked up and ready on the 25th. There’s no prep required and nothing to clean if you’re savvy about eating out of boxes.  Toss that overcooked turkey and stale gingerbread house into the trash. Bring on those crispy egg rolls, steamed dumplings, fried rice, and General Tso’s special dish.

While many restaurants shut their doors for the holiday season, we’ve got a few here that will be on-call so Santa has a place to stop when he’s tired of all those damned cookies.

A Chinatown fave with plenty of place to sit and enjoy life! Good thing, because it’s usually packed. Dim Sum.

Family friendly restaurant also does delivery. It’s huge portions that are good to share. It’s not just Chinese either — it does Cambodian, Thai, Vietnamese. So, papaya salad anyone?
