This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Chinatown, Canal Street to Bayard Street, New York City, NY
The tour begins in the heart of bustling Chinatown with an introduction into the history of Chinese people in New York, which dates back to the 19th century. Arrive at the first eatery of the day and enjoy a delicious steamed dumpling, made fresh to order, as you discuss the mythical originals of these little dough balls. While you eat, learn about why dumplings are such a well-loved and iconic part of Chinese cuisine, and then move onto the next stop of the day.
At restaurant number two, enjoy some hot-from-from-the pan fried dumplings while you listen to your guide share fascinating insights into the varieties of Chinese food and the immigrants that brought it to America. You’ll also learn about the murky origins of some of America’s favorite ‘Chinese’ dishes, and how to spot real ones from the fake.
Wander through the vibrant Chinatown Mall next, which feels like a shopping center straight out of Beijing, and smell the rich flavors from the array food vendors all around. Back on the streets, visit some of Chinatown’s most famous landmarks, including the original Five Points, Doyer Street, and the Nom Wah Tea Parlor. The final stop of the day is a local favorite, home to the Shanghai specialty of soup dumplings, accompanied by a flavorsome steamed pork bun to make sure you leave with an extra plump tummy.
