The Daily Meal’s latest report, America’s Best Chinese Takeout. This annual ranking has quickly risen as the gold standard for the nation’s favorite cuisine “to-go.”  From Sichuan and Canton to Shandong and Beijing, we’re a fortunate nation to have so many provincial Chinese cuisines represented not just in the larger metropolises but throughout the lower 48 and beyond, and the restaurants on our list are certainly worth writing home about. Perhaps unsurprisingly, California is the most represented state, claiming five spots on this year’s list.
 The Daily Meal searched America to seek out the best Chinese takeout, from strip mall nooks and holes-in-the-wall to bustling Chinatown institutions and bold new kids on the block. We consulted our own group of chefs and city experts, James Beard Award-winning and nominated chefs like Ken Oringer and Anita Lo, and both nationally and locally trusted sources online and in print in cities across the country. Some great places didn't make the list, but after qualifying the food based on authenticity to regional cuisine, speed and of course, flavor, the food from these 15 places emerged as the clear winners.
