Now that they are on Amazon, going to try them through a delivery order.  Dan Dan Noodles sound like a must-order.  Has anyone had the scallion pancake?  How's the Ma Po Tofu?

A word of caution on Amazon Prime Now. @MichaelBDC and I ordered Panda Gourmet via Amazon again on Thursday and it took nearly 90 minutes to get to us. There was a disclaimer when we were ordering citing that the items we wanted would take a long time to prepare. However, following the tracker, it was clear that the kitchen prepared our order in a reasonable amount of time but the driver was making multiple deliveries (we are unsure if it was from one or multiple restaurants). Saw the driver drive past us (in Chinatown) to do one or more deliveries in the Palisades/Georgetown. The result was that much of our order needed a bit of reheating. Still a pretty good meal, but something to take into account when putting in an order.

Your post is very interesting.  My close friend owns a bar in Adams Morgan, and he participates in a number of these delivery services.  He gets complaints frequently from people that the food isn't good.  The bottom line is that he cannot control what happens when the food leaves his restaurant.  He also said that it often sits for long periods of time before being picked up and in those instances he makes a new order, but still cannot control when and in what condition it gets to the purchaser.

 The mapo tofu is very good, very flavorful but not that spicy
