Chinatown Food Tour a breath of fresh air!

Despite having visited Chinatown on my own too many times to count, and having done two other Chinatown food tours, this tour took me to areas of Chinatown I had never visited! The guide, Bert, was enthusiastic, funny, and incredibly knowledgeable about what we were eating, how it was prepared, and what made it the best! He also told us alot about the history of the area, including many new facts I had not previously heard. Having had Peking duck in Beijing some years ago, I must say the Peking duck we had on the tour was outstanding! I highly recommend this tour, my group loved it.

The Chinatown tour was wonderful. Burt was our tour guide and was a wealth of information and clearly enjoys his job. We had fantastic Peking duck at one of the hottest restaurants in Chinatown that will be remembered for years to come. Burt is very knowledgeable of the history of the area and the culture. Burt had many interesting stories to tell us of Chinatown in addition to the food we were served. All three restaurants that we ate in are highly rated and are widely recognized as in the top tier. We also visited several local stores selling a

wide variety of different merchandise. I would recommend this tour to anyone that enjoys food and history.

We went with a group of eight with a plan to try something different. We had so much fun. Bert, our tour guide, was pleasant, funny and extremely knowledgable about all aspects of Chinese food and Chinatown. He could even provide recipes. The food was very good and we had more than enough to eat. Our entire group felt that this was well worth it. We are planning our next tour as I write this.

This was the second tour that we have done with Foods of New York, and we enjoyed it every bit as much. This tour was more food-oriented; it included three sit-down mini-meals, all of which were delicious and interesting. The meals were accompanied by useful explanations of the culinary traditions and the methods of preparation. Our tour guide, Bert, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to; he welcomed questions and could usually answer them. He also led us through some of the streets and alleys of Chinatown, explaining the history of evolution of the neighborhood. He encouraged us to try some of the local delicacies, but he was kind enough to warn us about the strangeness of some of the flavors and textures -- forewarned was forearmed. The only thing I would have liked added was a recommendation of where to shop for local specialties -- linens, jewelry, gifts, etc. We would certainly recommend this tour, and we will do another tour with this company when we are back in New York City again.

We enjoyed the food and the guide Bert was superb. Will do it again sometime in the future...

We suggest in the future links to local hotel will benefit those that don't want to wake up early in the morning and take a bus to the meeting place.
