“Thanks goodness for this app! …it thoroughly covers a vast amount of Chinatown spots, via the written word and through excellent photos, as well.”

“We’ve road-tested the app more heavily than almost any other on our phones, and keep finding more to recommend it. Select your destination, and you’ll encounter the best part of the app: Nelson’s funny and spot-on reviews of every single stand, bakery, and restaurant. We dig you, Chinatown Chow Down, for giving one of the city’s best destinations for amazing, cheap eats a mobile concierge of its own. ”

“Chinatown Chow Down provides hand-picked information on over 115 places to eat including dozens of hidden gems, hole-in-the walls and street carts, some offering meals for as little as $3.”

Some large and clearly marked, others not so much. Well, there’s now an app for that. Enter the handy Chinatown Chow Down mobile application.”
