Chinese takeout is all over the city. Usually, it is stuff like rice or noodles that come in the little containers. Most places use plastic containers with locking lids for any dish that can be somewhat sloppy.

But, if you went into a Chinese Restaurant and asked nicely - or offered to buy some - I bet that they will accommodate you.

You can also check out Pearl River (pearlriver.com/v2/FramesCat.asp?iGroup=318) or The Container Store (www.containerstore.com/shop…), tho these are more for gift-giving purposes.

A little bit off topic ... but you might enjoy the book called "The Fortune Cookie Chronicles". It is all about the history of American Chinese Food.

It's well written and a bit tongue-in-cheek at times, like when the author goes searching for the history of "General Gau".

Hey haribostarmix:-) Am mentioned, don't think you'd have a problem asking for a few and offering payment from a Chinese restaurant! If you're looking for using them as gift boxes, you may want to check out Pier1 that offers them seasonally in various colors;-) EnjoY!

Pearl River has pocketbooks that look like fabric-covered takeout containers. I know that's not what you asked but I think they're so cute.
