NileGuide Expert tip:
After fighting it out with the Canal Street crowds for knock-off bags, go with a group to one of the neighborhood's many restaurants for dim sum, a filling selection of bite-sized treats, usually eaten for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.
- New York's Chinatown is a cultural haven full of ancient and exotic traditions, and a huge amount of restaurants. This bustling and crowded neighborhood is home to over half of the city's Chinese population. In the grocery stores and fruit stands, you will find many food items available nowhere else in the city—from exotic fruit and vegetables to live snails and dried shrimp. In recent years, excellent Thai, Vietnamese and Korean restaurants have joined the mix.
