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
By OldPumpGuy on October 7, 2016
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!

It was fun and informative. Kyle made history come alive. He really knew about the buildings and how they were involved with the mob.

Well worth the trip and sunburn. :)

We went on the Chinatown tour and found it to be better than expected based on some of the comments on this site. We definately saw areas of Chinatown that we had not seen before, however, the tour group was too large. We arrived on time, as did the majority of the group, and we were up to 14 by the start time of the tour but then someone turned up and said they were one of a party that were coming so we waited for 20 minutes in 90 degree heat on a busy street corner and eventually told the tour guide he had to leave without them as it was getting ridiculous. The one person that had turned up was rude to the guide when he tried to find out what was happening but he handled the situation quite well under the circumstances. As we were leaving, the rest of the missing party arrived, all 7 of them. So now we were up to 22 people which was far too many to be walking through the crowded streets of NY Chinatown on a Saturday afternoon.
We stopped at 4 places for food but had to eat out on the street or in a local park which was fair enough, but because of the large numbers, after the guide had served the food to the first people they were coming back for seconds before everyone else had received any (and yes, it was the party of 8 that was first in line every time and came back for more). I felt this aspect of the tour could have been controlled better by the guide as he was rapidly becoming overwhelmed by this awful party and just giving the food away.
I would go on another tour with this company and hope that the group numbers were less. I definately would not do a tour like this again in hot weather, it was brutal!!
