About this event

While Chinatown might seem touristy these days, it's still hiding some of the best bites in NYC...if you know where to look. Get ready to experience a food crawl that will lead you to the neighborhood's best-kept secrets (if you can keep it hush-hush).

Join New York Adventure Club as we journey through the twisted back streets of present-day Chinatown to eat at some of the neighborhood’s best culinary destinations, while learning about the highs and lows it has endured over the past several generations.

Led by prominent neighborhood expert Mike Morgenthal, our culinary experience will include:

  • A custom-made NY Adventure Club route to showcase the best Chinatown eateries hiding in plain sight
  • The story of Chinatown throughout New York’s history, from Five Points to the first Chinese language theater in New York City to the neighborhood of today
  • A bite at several different off-the-beaten-path Chinatown eateries, from scallion pancakes and dumplings, to beef jerky and steamed buns

Come hungry!

*Your ticket includes tastings at every eatery on the tour

**There are no bathroom breaks on the tour

***Please bring water and a pair of comfortable shoes as we’ll be on our feet for the duration of the tour

****This experience ends at the corner of Grand and Mott Sts. 



Event takes place rain or shine.
