Ready for Christmas? Five Places to Sip and Sup

Most eateries are closed on Dec. 25, but if you must venture out for fuel, here's a hint: Fortune cookies and a couple of chain restaurants will save the day.

Just about everyone is open Christmas Eve, but the real challenge is who is open Christmas Day. Sure, your corner 7-11 will never let you down when you're seeking a last-minute carton of half-and-half, but what if you seek a bit more than a quick dash in and out of a shop?

Here are some places that will be open Christmas Day.

Asian Buffet & Sushi

44763 Five Mile Road, Plymouth
734-254-9800
When the neighbor's dogs devoured the turkey in "A Christmas Story," the family opted to dine at a Chinese restaurant. That logic sticks: Asian Buffet & Sushi will be open from 11:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. Christmas Day.

44681 Ann Arbor Road West
734-455-8070

If you need to get out, perhaps for an omelette or burger, consider a stop at our old checker-overalled friend. The eatery will be open 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Christmas Day, so you never have to go without a Slim Jim.

Chopstick House

3500 N. Lilley Road, Canton
734-983-9288
www.​thechopstickhouse.​com/
The Chopstick House is open noon-10 p.m. Christmas Day. Stop in for Peking Duck, beef with broccoli, vegetarian and light options, and plenty more.

39550 Ann Arbor Road East, Plymouth
734-459-0880
www.​dennys.​com
Denny's will be open all day, sticking to its 24-hour schedule, so whether you need something at 4 a.m. or 4 p.m. or a late-night pick-me-up, there you go.

Red Dragon Chinese Restaurant

44515 Ann Arbor Road West, Plymouth
734-354-7575
reddragonplymouth.​com
Red Dragon Restaurant will be open from noon-10 p.m. Christmas Day. Drop in for all the classics, from egg rolls to egg drop soup, sesame chicken to sweet & sour pork.

Now we know this is a list of only five. If you feel a restaurant deserves a shout-out as a place to nosh on Christmas Day, by all means, share in the comments section below.
