Don't blink or you will walk right by this little hole in the wall shop. The lychee sorbet is amazing and a must try. Our favorite stop each time we are in NYC. Be brave and try something different! Pricey but homemade with awesome ingredients.

Loved this place. Asian flavors and great service. Had the black sesame, Dan tat, pandan, and durian. Black sesame had the best flavor and the durian followed me all day. Hope to come here again.

After Dim Sum in Chinatown I always get a bit of a sweet tooth. Thankfully The Original Chinatown Ice Cream Factory is right around the corner from my usual lunch spot. Make sure to try the almond cookie or better yet, the black sesame pictured...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
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
