Chinatown Food Tour with Mott Street Girls
July 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$35 – $50
From the early chop suey joints to today’s regional Chinese restaurants, the evolution of Chinese food in America tells a tale of immigration and adaptation. Join us as we eat our way through historical eateries from the 1920s to the present and share stories of the culinary traditions and family legacies behind these neighborhood mainstays.
We begin our journey in Chinatown’s “Little Fuzhou” to try stuffed fish balls. Then, we will head to a multigenerational family-run tofu shop to taste fresh soy milk. Next on our list is a little-known takeout spot to sample Hakka cuisine. At Chinatown’s oldest bakery, we’ll savor a sweet treat that dates back to its earliest days. Then, we’ll swing by a hidden stall to snack on fried dumplings. We’ll end with a visit to a beloved local bakery to enjoy Asian-inspired sponge cakes.
This tour is hosted by Mott Street Girls, an organization that strives to preserve Chinatown’s rich cultural heritage through hosting walking tours and partnering with community organizations.
