Chinese Food on Thanksgiving

dratlover Nov 21, 2010 07:20 AM

My nephew wants Chinese food for Thanksgiving. I have been calling restaurants in the Burbank, North Hollywood area. So far I have had no luck...they are all closed.
Does anyone know of a Chinese restaurant that is open on Thanksgiving day?

      But only after your neighbors' mangy bloodhounds have eaten your turkey. ;-)

      Head further south and east to the San Gabriel Valley. Just about every single Chinese restaurant in Monterey Park, Alhambra, San Gabriel, Arcadia and the surrounding envrions, as well as further east in Rowland Heights, City of Industry, Hacienda Heights, etc. will be open (and crowded).

        I concur.

        My husband and I have done dim sum for Thanksgiving for the past few years and we always head out to SGV. The restaurants are open, packed and happy.

          Peterboy....my family has always done turkey for Christmas and Thanksgiving. I only wanna do Chinese because that is what my nephew wants, and I am now unable to cook. :(

            Chinese Friends in Chinatown. Maybe try Chi Dynasty in Los Feliz or they opened a new branch in the valley.

            LA Chinatown every place will be open too.
            Some will sell cooked turkeys too.

                I am told U2 gets their turkeys (and turkey dinners) from Ranch 99. If that's true, might as well go to the source.
