The best Chinese restaurants in New York

, , Leave a comment

In the heart of New York emerges Chinatown, where you can taste the typical Chinese dishes that catapult into a different reality, albeit within the American metropolis that never sleeps.

The typical and best-known appetizers are the dragon clouds, shrimp sticks, small fried toast with shrimp, or – to stay light – mixed salad with shrimp and Chinese sauce. What are the typical Chinese dishes that are regularly eaten by tourists and residents?

What to eat absolutely

Do not miss the spring rolls, accompanied by dumplings,  steamed or grilled ravioli which can be meat – shrimp – vegetables. We proceed with the choice between the very light Cantonese rice, rice noodles with vegetables, or soups, which constitute a real single dish.

The dishes that make up the second are mainly made up of chicken or shrimp: chicken with pineapple and bamboo, chicken with almonds, fried shrimp, steamed or with soy sauce.

As for desserts, the fruit is preferred in Chinese restaurants and every cook has his own secret recipe, but fortune cookies are never lacking.
