Phantom Gourmet: Chinese Take-Out

BOSTON (CBS) – If you don’t have New Year’s Eve reservations yet, you may want to consider take-out.

Dan Andelman shows us some of the Phantom Gourmet’s favorite spots for Chinese take-out.

For Chinese food lovers, Mai Place in Canton is a favorite for tender boneless spare ribs and the tangy triple delights packed with shrimp, beef, chicken, and veggies served in an edible nest of fried potato sticks.

Bamboo in Bedford, Dedham and Westford specializes in both Chinese and Japanese cuisine, but the biggest crowd pleaser is the so-called bobo for two. It’s an amped up pupu platter stacked with shrimp tempura, crab rangoon, and teriyaki beef skewers.

Great Chow in Quincy and Abington offers an upscale Chinese take-out experience, with standouts like the house lo-mein with shrimp, pork, and beef. This is also Phantom’s favorite place for general gao’s chicken, cooked perfectly crispy, yet tender, with an ideal mix of sweet, sour, tangy, and hot.

At Lavender in Sudbury, instead of chicken lettuce wraps, they offer lobster lettuce wraps are served with a tangy hoisin sauce. Plus, there’s light and flavorful pineapple fried rice, and tropical pineapple chicken served right in the shell.

Put in your order as soon as you can and pick up your order as early as possible.

For more food and fun, watch the Phantom Gourmet Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. on TV38.
