Due to unfounded, premature coronavirus rumors in early February (weeks before there was any community spread), many restaurants in Houston’s Asiatown/Chinatown were struggling even before area dining-rooms were shuttered. Now, business is even harder. However, many are adapting by offering takeout, curbside pickup and delivery. Ordering from one of the places below is a good way to take a break from cooking while continuing to support local restaurants during this difficult time. If you don’t see one of your beloved eateries, check out websites and social media.

In addition, we have an ever-growing, citywide list, which includes a convenient map, and several other neighborhood-specific lists (plus, we are adding more every week):
