Chinese food is proverbially perfect for takeout, and this family-owned spot has toggled from dine-in to curbside and delivery with nary a hitch. The new menu online is entertaining and organized in quirky fashion, and you’ll enjoy browsing as you decide exactly which flavors seduce your funny bone, from the Napa Cabbage Patch soup to the Love Me or Hate Me (spicy cumin) beef, lamb, or tofu. Order this to go: the garlicky, cold Not Dan Dan Noodles; the Obnoxiously Delicious green beans; and the Chuan, Sichuan-spiced pork belly with minced greens. Or anything else. In general, the spice levels are either moderately hot or represented by easy-to-eat-around chiles. Pro tip: It’s a busy place; you might have a short wait beyond your scheduled pickup slot, but it’s worth it. We suggest a thermal bag to keep things hot on the drive home.
