Some Have Chinese For Christmas

     In a spin off of the popular movie a Christmas story, where a family turkey is destroyed and they end up going out, life imitates art somewhat in Tyler. Forgoing the traditional, many families came out to China King in Tyler for Christmas dinner. Instead of turkey and dressing, folks come out for a non-traditional meal of egg rolls , shrimp, and even octopus. Only too eager to please, China King has become a Christmas day favorite with Tylerites.

   "We decided to skip the hassle of a big meal and come out and we don't have any dishes or any clean-up just an easy way to have a dinner and kind of escape for a little while" says customer Aaron Jordan.

   "Well it's a lot of people that don't want to cook and they know me and so they come and enjoy with the food , and we have special food for the people who don't want to cook" says China King manager Terry Lin. Bob hallmark reporting/bhallmark@kltv.com
