"Chinatown at NYC" Brooklyn Restaurant Tip by quan_zou

  NYC Chinatown
by quan_zou

My favorites happen to be on Mott Street.
New York City's Chinatown, a tightly-packed yet sprawling neighborhood which continues to grow rapidly, is the largest Chinatown in the United States and the site of the largest concentration of Chinese in the western hemisphere! Both a tourist attraction and the home of the majority of Chinese New Yorkers, Chinatown offers visitor and resident alike hundreds of restaurants, booming fruit and fish markets and shops of knickknacks and sweets on torturously winding and overcrowded streets.

Favorite Dish: Pork is the chief meat of the Chinese - in fact, in some of the southern languages of China, the word meat is used to mean pork. The consumption of fish, both fresh and salt, is enormous. Fowls are the favorite article of diet, and beef is also eaten. Dishes in the Sichuan and Hunan areas are spicy, and they are a little sweet in the Shanghai area.
