West New Malaysia

Since it’s down an obscure alleyway on Bowery, you’re probably not going to stumble into West New Malaysia randomly. But you should make a point to come here for some excellent Malaysian curries, big bowls of soup filled with seafood, and shareable entrees like sauteed chicken that’s perfectly tender and covered in spicy shrimp paste. The menu is huge, but no matter what you order, make sure to get the crispy, fried prawns with salted egg. And if you come at lunch, lots of the entrees are offered for less than $10.

Nom Wah Tea Parlor review image

This Chinatown dim sum spot has been around since the 1920's. The food is just ok, but it's worth a visit to eat dumplings in a room that feels like a retro diner.

A bare bones spot for some of the best fried dumplings in Chinatown.
