Chinese closed but takeaways open

Right can anyone explain why all the Chinese take aways are closed and Irish chippers are open

Is it just that the Chinese know they need to lockdown to avoid illness or something got to do with the goods they provide

Chinese and chipper open here, the Chinese are here years and are more Dublin than me!

I've been frequenting both with gloves and stand outside waiting for my order, it's so weird but has to be done...

Local two are doing deliveries. One of the two Thais has closed and that's it.

New menu in the one near me, looked at the starters section and can't figure out why it goes 16.17.18.20 though...

Your statement is false. There's loads open on all of my takeaway apps. A out half are closed yes but there's still plenty for me to choose from.

Were delis in garages oredered to close? Went to 3 today on my break only to find all 3 had closed their delis. Very frustrating. I usually bring lunch but said I'd treat myself today but had no idea they were closed.

Not sure about garages but all our local centra/mace etc have working delis along with SuperValu.

I'm kind of surprised they're still open to be honest.
