iso western northern VA carryout suggestions for Chinese new year???

I live near Aldie, on the very western edge of the Washington region. I can easily get to Gainesville, Centreville, Manassas, and if stretching Sterling, Chantilly, Herndon. I would like to get some dumplings and char siu for carryout to go with the (David Chang) bo ssam and ginger-scallion noodles that I will be preparing for a Lunar New Year party on Saturday. Also trying to think of a dish with green beans, maybe with Smithfield hog jowl? I wold love to entertain any suggestions for good Asian carryout in this neck of the woods. I know that Centreville is great for Korean food but I don't know the good spots. And I don't know of any Chinese barbecue place that I could rely on for char siu. While I am at it, it would be nice to get a gallon or so of some good soup.

I thought of 100 Degrees but that is a little farther than I would like to drive, and iirc they do not have char siu. Good soup and dumplings though

There used to be a great little Viet Namese bodega on 606 that had good char siu and really great banh mi, but the last time I was there they did not have any of the prepared foods, I guess the health department caught up with them

  1. This suggestion may be a bit far but throwing it out there anyways. Cheong Won (place that shares space with Malibu Grill) in Fair Lakes did char sui on the weekends only. Maybe give them a call. Fortune Palace, in the Greenbriar shopping center, has it on their menu. Haven't tried it though.
