The Most Epic Dumpling Tour – Favorite Spots of Chinatown including Noodles, local bars, shops & random fun

October 20 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


So you’ve probably been to Chinatown a handful of times and gone to the same few places. Joe’s, Vanessa’s…but you’ve never really known:

Where are the BEST, LOCAL spots for dumplings in Chinatown?

How can I find the places NOT on the “Top 10” or inundated with tourists?

What’s the actual history + story behind Chinatown?

We started this tour for friends who’ve lived in NYC for years, and never really knew how to get around, or what to do in Chinatown. As a born and bred New Yorker whose father was a chef in Chinatown for 20+ years, I became the go-to Chinatown expert. So – for the person who has always wanted to get to know NYC better, wanted to make new friends or simply, just fricken loves dumplings, food + culture – this is for YOU.


We’ll be a small group that will be mingling + hanging out.

-Fried, steamed + soup DUMPLINGS from 4 – 5 different locations (plus if you have something super specific I can swap to make it happen like spicy ma po tofu or banh mi!!)

– Walking Tour of Chinatown including favorite local hotspots that I grew up going to including Singaporean Beef Jerky, Sponge Cakes, Milk + Bubble Tea, Super hidden markets + old school gold shops.

-Crazy history of Chinatown from the bloody gang fights to the most recent years of speakeasies

-A ciaooo! Branded tote bag, stickers + swagged out dumpling ranking card + pencil

-Just the most lit tour ever. Like, how often are you gonna get a real New Yorker who grew up there actually take you?
