Chinatown NYC Guide

Chinatown NYC is a small, but very densely packed area of shops and restaurants. It is best to just walk around, enjoy the culture, pick up some souvenirs, and most definitely, eat some delicious and cheap Chinese food.

Chinatown NYC Recommended Restaurants

Peking Duck House (22 Mott St, Mosco/Pell St) – one of the area’s “nicer” restaurants and the Peking Duck, of course, is great.

Chinatown Ice Cream Factory (65 Bayard St) – exotic flavors such as zen butter, lychee and Chinese almond cookie.

Wo Hop (17 Mott St, Mosco & Chatham Sq) – old school Cantonese, cheap, a favorite of NYPD and FDNY, as well as anyone hungry at  4am

Food Sing 88 (2 E Broadway) – freshest noodles, and fun to watch them being made, they look like silly string

Dim Sum Go Go (5 E Broadway) – fresh, made-to-order Dim Sum

Golden Unicorn (18 E Broadway) – Dim Sum served cart-style

Joe’s Shanghai (9 Pell St) – legendary for their dumplings and dim sum

Heaven (11 Doyers St, Bowery/Chatham Sq) – Vietnamese, known best for their spring rolls.

Pho Grand (277C Grand St), Vietnamese, Pho is noodle soup made with rice noodles and thinly sliced rare beef.

106 Mosco St., 5 Dumplings for $1.00. Restaurant has no name, no phone, no website…the sign outside just says, “fried dumplings.”

Chinatown NYC Shopping

Check out the local markets, with ducks and pigs hanging in the windows, Chinese herbs, lucky bamboo, lots of knick-knacks.

Ten Ren (75 Mott St) – one of our largest and most exotic tea selections

Pell Street – known as “Hair Alley,” dozens of hair salons and barber shops,  cheapest in the City.

Note – fake designer goods not covered intentionally. They are illegal, believed to support terrorism and child labor, and most definitely not fashionable.
