What you'll do

Looking for a COVID safe activity? Let me show you around Chinatown in a safe and distanced outdoor food tour!

With the most stops of any Chinatown food tours, we’ll visit FIVE different places and eat dumplings, pork buns, tea cakes, egg tarts, and perhaps THE BONUS ROUND! While you eat, I will let you know the history of the dishes and the history of the neighborhood. All of the places we will go are known for one item, so I will order while you eat!

Other things to note:
Bring warm clothes, a mask, comfortable walking shoes, a hat, a good mood and a large appetite!

In my 8+ years living in NYC, Chinatown has been my happy place. As a lover of food and travel, I've been on a mission for myself to find the best foods in Chinatown. I spent nearly every weekend eating my way through the area and compiling lists of the best foods. After about 3 years, I put together a tour.

I started taking my friends on my food tour for fun, and they liked it so much, they encouraged me to do it for visitors. I resisted, as I always felt it was a special experience I could offer my loved ones. However, I gave in, and am happy to show the world my Chinatown food adventure.

Where you'll be

All of the places we will go to are small shops that you would walk right past if you did not know about the delicious food hiding inside. Chinatown can be overwhelming, so I will help navigate the bustle. There is not much seating at these places, so we will grab the food and eat outside. At the end of the tour, I can give you advice on how to enjoy the rest of your trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 16 reviews.

My boyfriend and I have been looking for new, COVID-19 safe activities for our dates and this was the perfect pick! Scott is very personable and since it was just the three of us, it felt like we were friends just hanging out and eating delicious food together. I've lived in NYC for years and it's always fun to explore pockets of neighborhoods I don't otherwise spend a lot of time in. The amount of food we tasted was perfect, plus Scott shared the list of restaurants with us after the experience so we can go back later. We ended up getting some extra egg tarts to take home! Thank you, Scott!

I booked this tour with Scott for my team over at Spotify. The tour was awesome - very well paced, informative and fun! Everyone loved it. I’ve lived in New York for 9 years and all of the places Scott showed us were new discoveries that I would have not been able to spot on my own. It felt like he was letting us on a cool secret. The food was super interesting and tasty as well and Scott is clearly super passionate and knowledgeable about Chinese food, super easy to talk to, and overall a great guide! Also super flexible on timing and accommodating of dietary restrictions ( we had two gluten free folks). Awesome option for a team activity or if you are looking for a great food tour in NYC

Scott was awesome. We got our dates mixed up and he met us on the wrong day anyway! Who does that? It was a very personalized experience and something we could not have done on our own. All the food was unique and really good. Scott also has a very personable and sweet personality. Highly recommended. Thank you!
