- Discover the best of Chinatown and Little Italy
- Fascinating food histories to be learned
- Taste mouthwatering delicacies from the past and present
Take a tasty bite out of the Big Apple with this fun foodie tour. Little Italy and Chinatown are two of New York’s most popular neighbourhoods for visitors to explore, but most will only see the surface. By contrast, on this guided walking tour you’ll be taken to some of the very best places to eat, with regular tasting sessions of recipes that in some cases have been passed down over hundreds of years. In Little Italy you’ll visit traditional and family-run shops that have been in business for over a century, to sample delicious Italian cheeses, meats and pastries, as well as a few imported specialities.
While the Italian population of Little Italy has dwindled, Chinatown is booming, and you can now find menus that represent superb cuisine from across Asia - Cantonese, Thai, Szechuan, Malaysian and Indonesian plates can be found today. Wander past beautiful fruit and vegetable stalls stacked with fresh produce as the stallholders barter with the locals, taste Chinese dumpling and dim sum, and get an involving lesson in the cultures and traditions that still hold sway here. Bring an appetite, you’ll be needing it.
