As usual, it doesn’t matter if I’m doing a 30 Plus Teams Tour of somewhere far or a staycation, besides attending a sporting event,you just know that the Sports Diva is going to be talking about food also .
This time, a 30 Plus Teams Tour of New York City was no different.
Food was going to be involved.
Since my friend, who was visiting from Las Vegas , wanted to go to Chinatown to look around and of course, eat, we did just that
Even though I don’t get to Chinatown often, I know all the restaurants they have there are usually good.
I wasn’t disappointed.
There were so many to chose from, and after spending most of the day shopping, we were both hungry.
There were so many places to chose from.
One place, that caught my friend’s eye was New York Canton Lounge which is located at 70 Mott Street, right in the heart of Chinatown .
As I don’t know Dim Sum that much , I let my friend order for both of us.
After showing our vaccination cards ,which is a requirement in ALL New York City restaurants, we were shown to a table.
Since we both wanted tea, a few minutes after taking our orders, the waitress returned with two cups and a pot full of steaming hot tea.
We started off with a bowl of Won Ton soup, which was delicious.
After that appetizer, came the real eating and sharing.
Plates of spicy clams, shrimp dumplings, shu Mai, which is a dumpling and filled with either pork or seafood, were put on the table.
If that weren’t enough,we had scallops with broccoli and roasted barbecued pork.
Now I’m not going to tell you after eating all of this, the two of us went to the bakery next to the hotel and brought some pastry and coffee.
(Large Cafe Americano and Chocolate Mousse Cake for my friend and a large Vanilla Latte with Red Velvet Cake for me.)
As for the food, someone got leftovers to take back to the hotel.
Even if my friend wasn’t with me, I would come to this restaurant by myself.
The portions were filling and not expensive at all,
There are many other items to chose from on their menu as well.
At the end of lunch, a waitress not only brought out two fortune cookies, she brought a plate of orange slices to clean our palate.
Once again, the address of New York Canton Lounge is 70 Mott Street, New York.
It’s open seven days of the week from 11am until 7pm, Est.
