Overview of Your Tour
Experience authentic Asian cuisine like soup dumplings and roasted pork on our Chinatown walking tour. Stroll through the bustling markets and take in the area’s rich immigrant history. This neighborhood has been Irish, Jewish, and Italian before it was Chinatown. The overlapping experience of all these New York City immigrants is what makes us New Yorkers who we are today, and that’s what your Manhattan Food Tours guide brings to life for you. We bring the culture to life in a way you will never forget.
