Brooklyn’s Chinatown, located in the southern end of the borough, easily rivals the better-known Chinatown of Manhattan. Those in the know travel to Kings County for plentiful, authentic Chinese food at affordable prices. Your options for great food in Brooklyn’s Chinatown are numerous, but these six are great places to start chowing down on dumplings, noodles, dim sum, and other Chinese specialties.


Kathy’s Dumplings (Bay Ridge) This no-frills, counter-service spot serves a wide variety of its namesake dish, which it does very well. $5 will get you a nice big portion of pan fried pork dumplings (our favorite), although you could also get veggie, beef, and chicken dumplings either steamed or fried. Pair that with the excellent pan fried beef buns, the refreshing Chinese cabbage salad, or a scallion pancake. It’s all cheap, the service is quick, and the food is solid. Don’t forget to top it all off with a bubble tea! Photo courtesy of Vivian W. via Yelp. (more…)
