It's a beautiful sunny day. And it's just a little bit brighter because Lucky Liu's has reopened its doors for takeout.
There have been Chinese restaurants in Milwaukee for decades and decades and some of the originals still remain. Here's an updated guide of old classics and new spots to try out!
There is an old Chinese idiom (min yi shi wei tian) which translates loosely as "Food is the god of the people" or "Food is heaven." And for lovers Chinese cuisine - particularly Sichuanese - there's a substantial taste of paradise to be found at Sze Chuan in West Allis.
Peking House, the Chinese restaurant located in the Jefferson Building at 780 Jefferson St. Downtown quietly closed earlier this week. A call to the restaurant today confirmed the news.
Lucky Ginger, a contemporary Asian restaurant, will soon open at 221 N. Water St. in the space formerly occupied by Cynthia's.
Buddha Lounge, 1504 E. North Ave., opened on Monday and OnMilwaukee.com stopped by to sample the sushi and drink an Asian beer or two.
An Asian bar and restaurant called Buddha Lounge will open around Jan. 1, 2015 at 1504 E. North Ave.
Rhino Food Store, 7411 W. Hampton Ave., is what I always want Pacific Produce to be: cheap, unoffensive to my sense of smell and filled with my favorite Asian foods and items.
Year after year, Emperor of China takes our readers choice as best Chinese restaurant in Milwaukee. 2011 was no exception, easily besting the runner-up, No. 1 Chinese, by hundreds of votes. This Brady Street staple isn't especially fancy, nor is its fare. But with excellent lunch specials, including a great egg drop soup, and emphasis on quality and fresh vegetables, the Emperor is a solid pick for the best Chinese in town.
Long Wong's, Milwaukee's only Chinese-American sports bar, is closed. A sign on the door reads "closed for maintenance" and at this point it is uncertain when and if the bar will reopen.

Major local economic development news broke in China at the end of December. But because many people were on vacation and the topic has received little buzz, Jeff Sherman thought he'd comment on AmAsia Plaza, which could be a big deal for Milwaukee.
Back in the day, hungry North Shore diners would think nothing of taking the short trek to 76th Street and Good Hope Road for a good meal. But as dining options in the area thinned, only Yen Ching still packs 'em in, with outstanding Chinese cuisine than stands the test of time.
William Ho's is a staple of Shorewood dining. It's held down the south end of the suburb for two decades, and continues to draw diners from all over the city. It had been about 10 years since we dined at William Ho's, so we decided to check it out and update our opinions about this classic Chinese restaurant.
Although the city is dotted with Chinese restaurants and we were happy to welcome YI Jinlian to the Bucks -- however briefly - Chinese-Americans in Milwaukee seem to have a pretty low profile. "Chinese Milwaukee" ($19.99), by David B. Holmes and Wenbin Yuan, the co-founders of the Wauwatosa-based Milwaukee Chinese Historical Society, just might help change that.
