Street & Canal Street
This is where to start for fresh ingredients. You'll find rows of fish and vegetable markets as well as grocery stores stocking all kinds of Asian spices and sauces.
Deluxe Food Market, 79 Elizabeth Street (entrance also on Mott Street), is like the Zabar's of Chinatown.
Wong, 37 Mott Street,
is a decades-old neighborhood institution. Its two
lobsters for $20 deal is unbeatable!
Lee, 16 Mott Street,
serves authetic Cantonese dishes and soups just like in
the old country.
