(The Triangle Trend) — If there’s been any perk to social distancing, it’s the shameless excuse to order Chinese delivery more frequently. Not only is dining-in still not the absolute safest option, but many eateries are currently unable to reopen indoor seating areas. So, in the best interest of you, waiters, cashiers, and chefs—delivery or take-out is clearly the superior option. If you find yourself getting hit with regular cravings for Lo Mein, Spring Rolls, and Kung Pao Chicken, then you’ll love all these Chinese restaurants currently offering delivery.
