New York, New York Guide (B): Bite of Hong Kong in Chinatown, NYC

Chinatown, New York, a popular tourist destination, is flooded with tons of Chinese restaurants and one can easily get confused where to find that perfect spot that serves authentic Cantonese cuisine. But just a few days back, I came across a lovely place – Bite of Hong Kong – leaving us truly satisfied with a desire to come back again.

The restaurant which opened in 2015 was recently featured in The New York Times as well. It is owned by Donald Lee and while some of the recipes have been passed down by his family, the others come from the talented Head Chef – Mr. Fei.

The restaurant is pretty big and as you walk inside, you can see a display of all the live seafood – all of them were so huge, I was literally in awe, especially the King crab which was about 10 lbs!

Since their menu is pretty vast, the best thing for us was to ask for suggestions. Chris, who was our host and who we mainly interacted with, is a really wonderful guy and gave us some excellent recommendations. 

I really appreciate that they asked us beforehand whether we were allergic to any kind of food so they could cater accordingly. (Honestly, I haven’t come across many restaurants that do that.)
