Chinatown – Fresh Food

I’m inclined to believe that just about every city (or at least every big city) has it’s own Chinatown but to me the one in New York City will always be my favorite as it was the first one I ever visited.  Back then I went on a tour of NYC and only saw maybe two blocks of Chinatown which barely scratched the surface of what the area holds.

A lot of cross walking going on

It is a crowded area but not so much that you can’t get around or stop and look at the stands and stores with all of their wares to be purchased; some I recognized, some I didn’t and some still moving!  That amazed me when I saw this one guy unloading a bunch of crab that were waving their claws about.

Fresh and crabby

I’m so glad I had my photo friend take me on the tour because on my own I may have gotten a bit lost and would’ve missed so many things.  I think maybe this guy noticed us with our cameras.

There were so many places to buy food to cook or people getting ready to do the days cooking and so many colorful sights, sounds and smells to take in as we walked through Chinatown.

A bit of Chinatown’s bloody history next.

    I like the area. Plus I watched some videos on youtube and had a list of places to potentially eat at before arriving. 🙂

    Your have a strange juxtaposition with sunshine, fresh produce lining the sidewalks that have a warm feel about them, yet people dressed in winter jackets.

  3. Cool pics. I really enjoy visiting the Chinatown in Boston. A fellow grad student from China took me a couple of times. It’s a different experience to go with someone from China. He got me to try new and exciting dishes. Cheers!

    • Thanks! Now that is a real way to explore a new culture. I did that once with a friend from India who took me to an Indian restaurant and told me what was good to eat and how to eat it in one case.

    I love Chinatowns in USA and am so surprised to see our local chain “Gong Cha”there – excellent bubble tea and I hope you got to try it, though laden with sugars! I find that the Chinatowns in larger cities in USA are vibrant and really fun to shop or browse through. Thanks for the share and a visual of this Chinatown.

    • I’ve never tried bubble tea. I’ve always been hesitant to try to drink tea with stuff floating in it LOL I saw on a Netflix show the other day about street food in Singapore. Chicken rice, chili crab and putu piring.
