If you love Chinese takeout, raise your hand. WE DO. Lee and I are always down for delicious Chinese food. In fact, we are huge fans of Thai takeout, Sushi takeout, and anything that is fresh, full of crunchy veggies, and a decent price! If we are talking favorite takeout dishes it would be ginger chicken or beef and broccoli.
