Splurge or Steal? Iced Coffee

You don't have to travel to China to find authentic Chinese cuisine. New York City has one of the largest populations of Chinese people outside of China. In fact, many businesses in Chinatown are operated almost exclusively in Chinese, though they frequently have translations in English for visitors who wish to partake of their wares. Even walking down the street can feel like a trip to a foreign country thanks to the multitude of street carts selling fruits and vegetables, many of which are common to Chinese cooking but are not immediately recognizable to those who aren't as familiar with traditional Chinese recipes. Dim Sum is a huge draw in Chinatown, especially on the weekends, when the wait for tables at places like Golden Unicorn and Nom Wah Tea Parlor can be up to an hour. It's worth it though for Chinese specialties such as shumai, turnip cakes and sesame balls. If it's Chinese barbeque and wonton soup that you're after, check out Great NY Noodletown on Bowery. Tea houses are another big draw for visitors and locals alike, where you can sample a wide variety of hot teas as well as the popular tapioca "bubble" tea. Chinese bakeries are plentiful as well and sell sweet and savory items such as pork buns, moon cakes and more. There are so many restaurants in Chinatown that it would take years to try them all. To help you sort through all of the options, we have organized a list of Chinese restaurants here. You can sort through the options based on price and ratings.
