Philly's Best Chinese Takeout in 2024

July 1, 2024

Let's face it, Philly. Sometimes, life gets hectic. Work deadlines loom, errands pile up, and the thought of cooking a fancy meal feels like climbing the Rocky Steps in flip-flops. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice delicious food! Here’s the guide to the tastiest Chinese takeout in the city.

Let’s dive into our top pick of classic Chinese dishes that are perfect for takeout:

1. Kung Pao Chicken

This Sichuan stir-fry is a crowd-pleaser for a reason. Tender chicken gets tossed with peanuts, vegetables, and a chili-infused sauce that packs a flavorful punch. It's the perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spicy, making it a great choice for those who enjoy a kick.

Where to find it: Head to the Han Dynasty for their rendition of Kung Pao Chicken. They offer a variety of spice levels, so you can customize your heat! Their takeout portions are generous and perfect for feeding the whole family.

2. General Tso's Chicken

Another Sichuan favorite, General Tso's chicken features crispy fried chicken bathed in a sweet and tangy sauce. It's a classic American-Chinese dish with a loyal following.

Where to find it: Dim Sum Garden (1020 Race St.) is a Philly staple known for their extensive menu and delicious dim sum. But don't sleep on their takeout options! Their General Tso's chicken hits all the right notes with its perfect balance of sweetness and spice.

3. Wonton Soup

This comforting soup is necessary for any Chinese takeout order. Delicate wonton wrappers filled with savory pork or shrimp bob in a flavorful broth making it the perfect starter or light meal.

Where to find it: Sang Kee Peking Duck House (238 N 9th St.) is a Chinatown institution famous for its Peking Duck. But their wonton soup is a hidden gem! The broth is rich and flavorful, and the wontons are perfectly cooked.
