Mouthing Off asks a handful of chefs where they’d go to get some quality Chinese Food on Christmas. Tom Valenti favors the gaudy-but-awesome Shun Lee West, Dave Chang once again professes his undying love for Great N.Y. Noodletown, and Danny Bowien says he’d just love to be in front of a tray of fried, beer-braised chicken with red chiles, fennel Sichuan peppercorns, and a pile of handmade noodles at Spicy Village. Headed down the East Coast, Paul Qui says he likes Peking Gourmet in Falls Church, and the list, which also touches down in the South and on the West Coast, is all that and dim sum. [F&W;]
