    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.

    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

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

    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.
