Hey KennyJoe, I have a few recs for you!
1.) Wo Hop
(17 Mott St.) - Here's my write-up from 2009 when my family came to visit: http://www.roadfood.com/F...with-pics-m567932.aspx
2.) Big Wong
(11 Mott St) - If you scroll a bit more than halfway down the page in this report you'll see a couple of pictures I posted from Big Wong. It's been the "go-to" place for my girlfriend's family for years. http://www.roadfood.com/F...0464&high=big+wong
3.) Vanessa's Dumplings
4.) Great NY Noodletown
5.) Chinatown Ice Cream Factory
- While Vanessa's isn't technically IN Chinatown, I think it's worth a stop. Baah Ben and I had some good food at Great NY Noodletown and I love the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory. http://www.roadfood.com/F...with-pics-m507319.aspx
6.) Try ducking into any random Chinese bakery for some roast bbq pork buns and some yellow buns with a sugary topping (po lo bau).
I'm sure there are plenty of noodle shops and dumpling house in Chinatown I have yet to try but I've only just scratched the surface...
Enjoy the city and Happy Eating!!!
