Treat your taste buds to an exotic adventure

…in a culinary wonderland. Discover the most unusual and enticing restaurants, cafes, markets, and even food carts in Chinatown and neighboring Little Italy. You’ll not only answer our usual array of tricky questions, you’ll also be challenged to acquire and taste such foods as dumplings, roti canai (Malaysian fried bread), popcorn chicken, mini cakes hot off the grill, bubble teas, “Zen butter” ice cream, pizza, cannoli cupcakes, egg custards, banh mi (Vietnamese sandwiches), rice balls, “stone chocolate,” and “yummy bread.”

Each team will need to bring a smartphone for the photo challenges. The price does not include food purchases, because we want you to have a wide range of options to suit your taste, your budget, and your diet. We’ll point you toward our favorites, but the ultimate choice is between you and your tummy. (You’ll probably spend less than $10 per person.)
