What you'll do
Feast your way through NYC's real Chinatown. Our journey begins with delicate Cantonese chang feng from Joe’s Steam Rice Roll. Next up is Western China via New World Mall for spicy cold noodles. We’ll taste the creamiest fresh tofu, enjoy luscious Shanghai soup dumplings and Peking duck. At the Ganesh Temple, we’ll pay our respects to Ganesh and then partake in delightful dosai at the Canteen. We’ll enjoy lamb xiao long bao, seabass jiaozi and other Tianjin treats. We’ll end with a visit to the neighborhood’s oldest food hall, Golden Shopping Mall, a favorite of Andrew Zimmern and Anthony Bourdain. *Note: If you don't see the date or time you want listed as available, message me!

Food I’ll provide a wealth of delicacies at eight top spots.
Soft drinks I’ll provide non-alcoholic drinks throughout the experience.
