    A classic spot in Chinatown where everything is incredibly delicious, cooked quickly and surprisingly cheap! This place has been open for a long time for a good reason. We love their tang gei congee.

    Great place! The beef with eggplant and garlic is delicious. Beware of the fried rice with salted fish and chicken, it's super salty. Only order if you need a boost of sodium in your diet.

    One of the best good-cheap eat places in Chinatown, Manhattan. One of the "dirty hole in the wall" joints. Don't let the apperance scare you off. Very authentic Cantonese street food.

    Holy damn the congee / jook was SUPER GOOD here. The you tiao is dense and fantastic too. Topped off with a side of cold roast pork, and I was tearing up.

    The roast pork (cha siew) had nice charred bits but also lots of fatty parts and was hacked to shreds. Beef brisket and tendon noodle didn't have much beef. Cheap and trusty but not great food.

    This is some of the best roast pork in Chinatown. A serving over rice will set you back about five bucks. Cash only.

    Their thousand year old egg and pork congee is even better than congee village! It is very thick and they give you a lot more eggs and meat!

    Once you've put your childish giggles in the rearview mirror (we don't judge), set your sights on Big Wong's lobster. You'll get 2 for $20, each seasoned with fresh ginger and covered in scallions. Read more

    Absolutely the best roast pork you will find in New York. My Go-To is the roast pork and soy sauce chicken over rice. Get extra ginger! Trust me, because, well, you know...

    If you're looking for a quick bite for lunch, this is the place to go. Get the spare ribs. "Finger-lickin' good" doesn't just apply to Colonel Sander's chicken. Read more

    The you tiao here is the best. My parents noticed a decline in quality over the decades, but it's still pretty good by my standards. Expect hasty service.

    It's not fancy by any means but definitely delicious. Don't get turned away by the ducks hanging from the ceiling. Order familiar Cantonese dishes or be adventurous with congee. Seating is communal.
