Take a Culinary Tour of Chinatown
Chinatown, located in lower Manhattan, has a lot to offer residents and visitors. Tourists first began flocking to Chinatown during the early 20th century, mainly in search of exotic new cuisine to sample. You can carry on this tradition by planning your own culinary tour. If you’re driving there, you can find convenient parking on Division Street.
Nom Wah is one of the oldest places to eat in Chinatown, and the first to serve dim sum. The restaurant has undergone a modern transformation, while maintaining its authentic appeal. Today, each dim sum dish is cooked to order. The house special is pan-fried dumplings. You should also try the eggplant stuffed with shrimp.
Cheung Fun Noodle Cart
A culinary tour wouldn’t be complete without a world-class street food vendor. You’ll find this noodle cart on the north side of Grand Street. These dim sum noodles are steamed flat, then folded and topped with delicious sauces and other condiments.
If you haven’t had your fill of noodles yet, head over to Bassanova Ramen on Mott Street. This restaurant specializes in creative dishes for adventurous eaters. Try the black pepper tonkotsu or the spicy green curry ramen. Note that this restaurant is cash-only.
Located on Bowery Street, Sing Kee specializes in classic Cantonese dishes, particularly fresh seafood. Sample the flash-fried flounder and try the garlicky crab on noodles. Other good choices include the barbecue char siu and crispy chicken.
Peking Duck House
If you’re in the mood for a special dinner for two, the Peking Duck House is a must-try. You’ll find it on Mott Street. Its signature dish, the Peking duck dinner, is brought on a cart directly to your table and carved while you watch. If you still have room left for dessert, try the delicious fried banana with walnuts.
