Chinatown – Queens – Super HK

The SuperHK Food Court sits downstairs from the SuperHK grocery store. This huge grocery store is on Main Street. You can find ingredients galore and plenty of packaged noodles (we picked up a few Ramen packs we were curious about), sauces, vegetables (fresh, frozen, canned) and teas among other items. Walk downstairs (there are 2 entrances from the grocery store) to find about 20 food stalls. We had dumplings here.

Chinatown – Manhattan – Zu Yuan Spa

Zu Yuan Spa (48 Mott – 2nd floor) I am a walking tour guide. I usually walk 5+ miles a day. I am up and down stairs constantly and leading people through some amazing sites in New York City. All that can take a toll on your feet. I have great shoes, but sometimes you just need a little TLC for your feet (or back, shoulders, body). Zu Yuan Spa gives foot massages. Not those cute little rub downs you might get with a pedicure, but real serious foot massages. The massage is very deep and they also do Reflexology.… Read More
