The Best New York Chinese Food (and Korean)

Today we are going to talk about New York chinese food.

In addition to its more famous restaurants, New York has thousands of other fantastic eateries – many known only by neighborhood locals or culinary enthusiasts. Many of these cuisines are not readily available elsewhere, and thus really worth the trip while you’re here. Below you’ll find some of the more unique and celebrated New York Chinese Food (and one Korean place) – enjoy:

Mad For Chicken (Korean Chicken Wings)

Like its famous competitor Bon Chon, Mad for Chicken serves double-fried chicken – chicken that has actually been friend two times. While we can’t vouch for the nutritional value of this Korean classic, we would certainly agree that 2x the frying = 2x the taste.
314 5th Ave (between 31st St & 32nd St in Koreatown)
(212) 714-9700

Lam Zhou Handmade Noodle (Chinese)

This Chinatown noodle place may not look special from the outside, but it has acquired a massive following of New Yorkers who swear by it. Handmade, authentic Chinese noodles at very low prices.
144 E Broadway (between Pike St & East Broadway in Chinatown)
(212) 566-6933

Jing Fong (Dim Sum)

Of all the Dim Sum places in Chinatown, Jing Fong may be the all-around best. Located in nicely-decorated (certainly compared to other Dim Sum restaurants in the neighborhood) banquet hall large enough to hold a small army, Jing Fong offers both cart and stand service, which makes a large number of delicious options available. Other restaurants may claim better food, an assertion which can be disputed, but there is no competition with Jing Fong for style and overall experience.
20 Elizabeth St (between Canal St & Bayard St in Chinatown)
(212) 964-5256

Prosperity Dumpling (best New York Chinese food ever)

At 5 delicious pork dumplings per dollar, Prosperity Dumpling is the deal of the year. It also serves soups, pancakes and more, all at outrageously cheap prices. Vanessa’s Dumpling House offers a similar experience, though Prosperity Dumpling has a larger following. Either place will give you a bargain for your money, and a thrill for your taste buds.
46 Eldridge St (between Canal St & Hester St on the Lower East Side)
(212) 343-0683

Xi’an Famous Foods (video)

This restaurant has received wide acclaim from TimeOut NYC, the Cooking Channel and celebrity food explorer Anthony Bourdain. It offers an authentic taste of the food from China’s Xi’an province, from tasty noodles to exotic fruit teas and more. What’s more, Xi’an Famous Foods will fill you up for $6 and change.
81 St. Mark’s Place (between 2nd and 1st Avenues in the East Village)

French, Spanish, Catalan
