About: The SUPER BOWL of Chinese food is here! This LA legend is serving up all the classic favorites on its biggest night of the year. The NYC-style Chinese fare standby on bustling Fairfax Avenue (on the same stretch as another LA icon, Canter’s Deli) is 35 years strong. Founded by a music industry vet in the 80s complete with an attached music venue, it changed hands to restaurateurs Marc Rose and Med Abrous in 2016. Since then, the duo have pulled inspiration from the nostalgia of their youth frequenting similar Chinese-American establishments in their native New York City to breathe new life into the property.

When: Christmas Day, December 25, 12pm – 10pm

Location: 740 N Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046

Pre-order for pickup available
