    Lunar New Year: Tso's Happy Family

    "Happy families are all alike," wrote Leo Tolstoy. This Happy Family, a holiday special from the busy kitchen at Tso Chinese Delivery, is made with shrimp, chicken, and beef with broccoli, carrot, sugar snap-peas, bamboo shoots, baby corn, and button mushrooms in a savory spicy brown sauce. (We reckon the author's Anna Karenina would've loved this delicious amalgamation of flavor.) Bonus: Comes with a free order of Sesame Balls when you use this special Chronicle readers' code: accny2021.
    Available through Feb. 12
