Unlike places like New York, San Francisco, and Philly, New Orleans isn’t known for its Chinese food. Vietnamese, definitely. Creole, seafood, soul, undoubtedly. But while we don’t have a Chinatown, there are good Chinese restaurants, traditional and contemporary, on both sides of the river and the lake, in the ‘burbs, and near the airport. Serving soul-warming soups and noodle dishes to splendidly-stuffed bao and the glory that is Beijing duck, here are Eater’s picks for where to satisfy a craving for comforting Chinese cuisine in and around New Orleans.
It’s worth noting that many corner stores offer quick versions of Chinese specialties, and some are downright delicious. LB Saints Food Store is a case in point. But this list sticks to designated Chinese restaurants.
