Jewish delis and Chinese takeaways are traditional Christmas food for non-Christians. As many of the country's restaurants close their doors to celebrate the holiday that has metastasized to consume all of December and most of November, these spots are frequently the only ones open on Dec. 25.

With that in mind, it's almost surprising we've never seen a Chinese restaurant and a deli join forces. That's exactly what's on offer at Deli Desires this Thursday, Dec. 23. The newish deli will team up with beloved pop-up Little Giant for a series of interesting fusion dishes. The stores are offering krab rangoon bialys, omelette chili sandwiches and corned beef with broccoli, among other dishes. If you're looking for something to eat on the not-so-big day itself, the fusion resto is offering frozen scrapple dumplings to cook at home.

The food is being offered until they sell out. Doors open at 7 a.m. with no reservations. Pretty much just get in line as soon as you read this.
