Chinatown Food Tour of New York

Chinatown is a one-of-a-kind New York neighborhood that all have heard of, but few have explored. Beginning as a tiny village near the East River in the early 1900's, Chinatown was mostly a bachelor society, seeing as Chinese immigrants were only allowed into the United States one at a time; no families were allowed in the United States. When this immigration limit was lifter in 1965, the Chinatown population exploded, and by 1980, New York's Chinatown district was (and still is) the largest of any American city. Follow your expert guide through the labyrinthine streets of New York's most colorful, mysterious neighborhood, and sample the best culinary treats the neighborhood has to offer. From world-renowned dumplings and pork buns to homemade, fresh baked fortune cookies, the Chinatown Food Tour is a delicious and authentic New York adventure you won't soon forget!

    Chinatown Food Tour of New York Itinerary

    • Vanessa's Dumplings Good thing your guide has line-jumping privileges, because word spread quickly about their amazing dumplings and pork buns!
    • Jing Fong A hidden gem...More like a hidden goldmine! This sprawling 10,000 square foot restaurant hidden on the windowless second floor of a nondescript building is a sight to be seen, and tasted...
    • Nom Wah Tea Parlor Tucked away on the infamous "Bloody Angle" of Chinatown, this historic 1920's tea house is vintage New York at its finest.
    • Golden Fung Wong Bakery Homemade, fresh baked fortune cookies are only the beginning. Wait til you try their almond cookies!
    • Local Lore Landmarks from these storied streets include five points gangland hotspots, film locations, and much, much more!

Good Food & Fun Tour

Our guide was prompt and on the spot.
His tour was organized and well thought out.
Even made time for some of us seniors to take a bathroom break.
Lot of interesting information on Chinatown and surrounding area.
The 4 food stops proved tasty and excellent.
My only recommendation is to have the guide carry a colorful umbrella like they do in Venice to make it easier to spot him in a crowd.
Overall - highly recommend this tour!
