Get a head start on celebrating the Chinese New Year with a foodie trip to New York City’s Chinatown, one of the stops on our monthly day trip to the Big Apple!
You can pack drinks and a cooler of snacks for the ride on Jan. 30 on our comfortable bus, but save your appetite for the culinary adventure ahead.
Not sure where to start? Critically renowned Chef David Chang of Momofoku fame recently told The Observer magazine in the UK that “I’ve had more meals at Oriental Garden in Chinatown [in New York] than anywhere else.”
For more ideas, SF Weekly offered a trail that blogger Alex Hochman called the Danny Bowien Chinatown tour. Bowien, who owns Mission Chinese Food in the City by the Bay, sent the blogger to some of his favorite stops:
- Xi’an Famous Foods: cumin lamb hand-pulled noodles, stewed pork burger
- Prosperity Dumpling: dumplings , sesame pancake with beef
- Golden Steamer: pork buns, steamed pumpkin bun, takeout six-packs of ready-to-heat buns
