In the depths of Chinatown is the greatest restaurant in the city: Wo Hop. Go there, order the Roast Pork Chow Fon. Remember: DOWNSTAIRS WO HOP! Don't be fooled by the imitator!
A NYC tradition since 1938 and always full of characters day or night, we recommend the delicious duck lo mein or anything from the 'oriental specialities' menu
Don't eat the weird cookie they give you with your check..it has paper in it!
get the dumplings.
BEST CHINESE IN THE CITY - MAKE SURE YOU EAT DOWNSTAIRS, DON'T BE FOOLED! Order the...ANYTHING it's all droolworthy.
That's right go down the fuckin stairs moron! Who goes upstairs? I'll tell you: Assholes! Closed on Chinese New Year for a few weeks & occasionally around 5am to clean up. Go with friends, share food
4am Wonton soup.. this might be what heaven is...
Eat classic Cantonese food and leave as the sun rises. Chef King Phojanakong (Kuma Inn, Uni Nom): “Favorite for late night. It’s downstairs on Mott Street.”
Wo-Hop upstairs has the best fried dumplings. You can make food combinations up and they will make it for you. Try beef with egg sauce over chinese sausage fried rice or add a fried egg to a dish.
Peking pork chop and salt and pepper squid. The end.
DOWNSTAIRS! careful of the fakes.
AMAZING, worth every $ (and it's redic cheap!). Huge portions. I love the crunchy noodles with duck sauce, pan fried noodles w/ chicken, honey crispy chicken, & broad noodles! But everything is great!
This is how Mott St. looked in 1900. Wo Hop would be on the left.
Go here while plastered after a night out with a group of friends. Its a fun experience.
Bring a dumb friend to wait in line and have them call you when table is ready.
Get the egg drop soup. It's amazing
BEST PLACE IN NYC FOR CHINESE FOOD!
Perfect late night eatery if you're trying to soak up all the alcohol you consumed in the hours prior. Authentic, greasy Chinese food. Gotta love it. I have a thing for the chicken egg foo young.
Head downstairs. Order crispy noodles and spare ribs. Be sure to eat some chow fun. Buy the most awesome tshirt to ever touch your back for 6 bucks.
I don't get here often but when I do I go hard in the M F paint
best pan-fried dumplings on the planet; hot & sour soup is off-the-hook!
Same food as 17 Wo Hop, no line. Come here if the line at 17 is ridiculous, but not if you can get in there first
Beef with garlic sause yyyes
I'm known as crispy noodle man!
Outrageous Beef Chow Fon! Quick, no frills Chinatown dining - consistently great food and inexpensive.
Amaaaazzzzing!!! Be prepared for a stomache because you WILL overeat. The food is amazing and they give you so much. Get the pan fried noodles!!! Open 24 hours. It's love.
Eat chinese food, turn up!
Both the upstairs and downstairs Who Hops suck. This and Nom Wah are the worst tourist traps in Chinatown.
Try the Chinese food.
Amazing pineapple duck! The food comes out within minutes of ordering (kinda creepy). This place is 24 hours and so far the food has always been excellent. And they give you free tea too!
Always gotta order the seafood in this place, else it's not the better bang for the buck! Escargot, clams, lobster, minced beef with crabs are their specialty! #GenuineChineseDishes
Visit Wo Hop in Chinatown to get notoriously Americanized (but still delicious) "Chinese" food. Snap a photo while you're at it and add it to the basement photo wall.
Large portions. I feel fat now. THANKS OBAMA!
Good food..affordable prices..enjoyed it and late night dinning at 6am can't complain
One of the few restaurants in Chinatown that's open late, and one of the oldest in the neighborhood to boot. Mostly greasy Americanized fare, but classic nonetheless.
A personal favorite of mine is beef with egg sauce on noodles. But don't bother looking for it on the menu - you won't find it!
One of the oldest and best Chinese restaurants still standing in Chinatown.
The BEST wonton soup I've ever had!!
Try the Salt and Pepper Squid - Filipinos love their calamari! (via @Foodspotting)
Two different spots. The one upstairs is better IMO.
How does Luke live all the way in BK and manage to be the mayor? That's dedication.
Don't order egg rolls tasteless and cold. mushroom fried rice tasted burnt... As in the process of cooking rice not frying
Addicting. If you're a vegetarian, try the buddha's delight with brown rice for a healthier alternative. Or just get down and dirty with the mushroom fried rice
Eggplant with garlic sauce, shrimp egg foo young are my faves. Fried dumplings don't disappoint. They have brown rice too :)
: Oh my god, the food is amazingly delicious and fast service. CHEAP for NYC!
Try the Lo Mein - Chinese noodles! (via @Foodspotting)
