Here is part 2 of my New York City blog. It appears I probably will make up to 4 parts of the blog.
So we decided to visit New York City's main Chinatown in Manhattan. It was a rainy, cloudy day but it was still fun strolling around the streets.
This fellow looks so tired and stressed.
You can see that the fog is starting to lift.
Oh neat! I always wanted to see this. Even he is Chinese!
The weather is making everyone feel tired.
Umm... what is this? Does anyone know?
John wanted to take his friends to a soup dumpling place. We decided to go to Shanghai Asian Manor. This was right beside the other Chinese place where Anthony Bourdain visited yesterday.

Light up gigantic food posters...We don't have that in Toronto but I have seen the gigantic posters in Korea town.
We ordered some Kau Fu. It pretty much is bean curd or a type of tofu. I know it does not appear appetizing to the eye but It tastes really good! I would describe this dish has cold tofu that kind of tastes meaty and marinated in what tastes like sweet soy sauce.
Sauce for the Soup Dumpling with shredded ginger.
When I took a bite of it, it appeared to have the texture of deep fried tofu.
Our soup dumpling is here!
Har Gow! My favourite!
Wonton in Chilli Sauce Oil
Seafood and veggies on fried noodles.
It arrived on our table with this golden glow. Could it be? It's Golden Fried Rice from the Anime Cooking Master Boy!
Dean ordered the Beef Stew
General Tso's Chicken. My shutter wasn't fast enough!
This place would be 4.5/5.0. The server was friendly, Food arrived fresh and fast. Atmosphere was clean and approprete. I would definately return to this place when I am back in New York City.

Behind Mykee, there was a mother and her kid son walking closely behind us.
Kid: Mom, there's shit.
Mother: Noooo shit.
Mykee: It's not "Nooo Shit" there is Shit.
I think the mother did not want to encourage her son utilizing slang into his vocabulary but clearly, there was shit.
My favourite scribble!
My second favourite scribble! LOL!
This reminds me of the trailer of Despicable Me 2.
At the end of our hike, we ended up on the in a small garden in the middle of the streets.
I was joking that John's friend Luis lost his feathers.But we found them!
I love how this was layed out!
That Heart is heavy! I touched it and it appears to be entirely ceramic.
Tie dye for the beach people.
I love these colourful cages!
Men fashion trends.
John's relative's sister mentioned these cupcakes. She said there were gigiantic ones too!
These huge cupcakes were the size of 2 fists put together!
NYC's H&M's top floor.
I tried to capture them all into the frame.
I liked this concept of adding fake eye lashes on faceless mannequin.
These mannequins are cool!
Welcome to Uniqlo! This was my favourite retail store in New York. The greeter stood there greeting people so when we were at the entrance of the store, we consistently heard, "Hi, Welcome to Uniqlo!" I spent most of my money in this store. I purchased 3 skinny jeans, one Hello Kitty T-shirt, one striped t-shirt and a matching pair of shorts with it. All this was only for about $130!
Click to see the t-shirts moving inside the display case.
Color Blocking nicely done!
Asian cartoons such as One Piece and Hello Kitty was in style.
I liked this T-shirt.
The Adias Store
We walked to Korea Town!
We almost went into this place to eat but decided not to.
I ordered Cold Noodles in soup or Naengmyeon.
Ban Chan or side dishes.
The roasted seaweed salad was good!
Potato and Egg salad but it also had fruits like sliced apples in it too!
Ttuk Buki, spicy rice cakes. It also had glass noodles.
Yukijang was awesome! I finished it for my friend. It was that good!!!!!!!!!!!!!
John and Mykee ordered the Beef Bone soup.
My cold noodles came in a huge bowl. Everyone was like"Whhhaaat?" This bowl was the size of a small to medium sized watermelon!
The cold noodles were refreshingly good! It has a huge slice of asian pear, sliced beef, half a boiled egg, julianned cucumbers and radishes. I really enjoyed my meal.
Fried Man Do or dumplings.
I think that was like Shu mai or something.
