This tea parlor in the heart of Chinatown has been open for over 100 years. My 19 year old nephew asked to come here and it was popular with other tourists. Few Chinese though. Cheap but food quality not so good. Few veggie options too....More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
