Chinatown is known for having an abundance of great places to eat at an unbelievably low price point. One of my favorite stops is Wah Fung No. 1 on Chrystie St. just off Hester. The menu is limited to roast duck, pork, or chicken served over rice with a side of cabbage, but what they lack in variety they make up for in flavor. Don’t be surprised if there is a line out the door when you arrive, but don’t worry, the guys inside keep it moving quickly. While there isn’t seating in the restaurant they are located across from a park with plenty of benches to sit and enjoy your meal on a nice day.

Recommendations: Everything I have tried has been absolutely delicious, but the hands-down best deal is the pork, or chicken, over rice special. For $4.25 you get a generous amount of perfectly roasted pork or chicken over steamed rice and cabbage topped with sauce.

Cost: Everything on the menu is under $10 with most items being around $6 making for a super affordable and delicious option.

Where: 79 Chrystie St, New York, NY 10002 (right off Hester)

Hours: 9 am- 7 pm

How to get there: Take the B or D to Grand St or the F to East Broadway (a 35 minute subway ride from Our Place)
