Taking a ride on the way back machine, we arrive in New York’s Chinatown during pre-pandemic era where we see crowded streets and busy restaurants, which used to be a good thing.

Lois and I go exploring in Chinatown for great eats, finding New York’s largest Dim Sum Restaurant to New York’s finest Chinese restaurant, with some treats in between. We are certainly taking advantage of being tourists in the city and taking in all the attractions we can find 🙂

  1. We never made it to a dim sum restaurant while in New York but now we own a dim sum restaurant in Cincinnati. The only other place I have tried dim sum in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province in China. Dim sum seems quite addictive!!!!

  2. Love your videos. I'm a new subscriber and enjoy all the different places you've highlighted. Keep up the great work and stay safe!

  3. The original Jing Fong closed which was very sad but I recently heard that it's back! Although at a new smaller location. Taking the escalator up to that huge dinning room was a real classic NYC experience. The original location will be missed.

  4. So sad Jing Fong is gone. They split into two smaller locations. This is probably the last video that captured the grandiose dining experience in Chinatown. Tim, please save all footage.. it's a relic someday!

  5. Tim- Another place located at 21 Mott Street in NYC Chinatown is Hop Kee. It is old school Cantonese style food. You can order off menu if you want. Just order the Cantonese name for each dish. They even have snails in black bean sauce.

  6. Wandering around chasing the carts of food is how it's done in Hong Kong. Some older women even walk into the kitchen to get dim sum items. You may also want to check out Queen's for Cantonese style dim sum. Brooklyn has a lot of mainland style restaurants with dim sum and unusual menu choices. The Bronx also has great mainland Chinese food options. But bring someone who speaks the Fuzhou dialect (or Fujianese dialect), since very few speak Mandarin or Cantonese.

  7. Nice dim sum. The first dim sum place with push cart is quite rare in the modern day setting specially in NYC.i would have thought its in asia country maybe HKG that u can still find such place.must be hidden gem. ice cream during rainy day, never give thought of that, but it does look good

  8. It's great that some Chinatown are still around. I understand that the Vancouver Chinatown had totally changed( understandable, most Chinese family had moved and purchased new houses in the suburbs) . San Francisco China Town still remain the same. On our last visit I was happy it is the same as I remembered. Really authentic Chinese food is we Chinese always look for. Just a note Chinese servers are all about serving do not expect any 🤔smile. We will visit Vancouver and NYC again in Summer of 2022. 😀
