What You’ll Do
Within a three-block radius of Philadelphia’s Chinatown, you can find an array of foods that originated in various far-flung regions of China. As you follow food writer Jamie Shanker around the neighborhood, you might savor Chinese staples such as Szechuan garlic wontons, chopped-to-order roast duck, and green tea bubble waffles.
