Little Italy & Chinatown Food Tour Itinerary
Meet your guide by the Jacob Wrey Mould fountain in City Hall Park, ready to begin your gastronomic journey through the melting pot that is Manhattan. The fusion of different ethnic groups and cultures that thrive in New York has clearly marked the culinary character of the city, where the tastes of far-flung corners of the world live side by side in neighbouring districts.
Your food tour will start in Manhattan's Lower East Side, where you'll discover New Yorkers' favourite dishes, before going on to explore the streets of Little Italy. This historic neighbourhood is full of culinary culture. Here, you'll hear all about the iconic New York Slice, the city's take on Italian pizza, as well as learning about the different types of cheeses that can be found in the area's independent delicatessens.
As you discover the importance of the city's immigrant heritage, and how its history has shaped the delicacies on offer on every street corner, you'll continue on to the next stop on your foodie route: Chinatown. Here you'll walk alongside numerous street food stalls selling delicious dumplings, a Chinese speciality that has captured the hearts of the residents of the Big Apple.
It wouldn't be a food tour of Manhattan without a stop at a stand selling pretzels: twisted knots of bread dough that originated in Europe. Pick between sweet or salted - they're perfect quick snack when you're hungry and in a hurry!
Finish off your tour with happy taste buds and top tips to continue enjoying the incredible gastronomy of New York.
