SPICY VILLAGE / 68B Forsyth St.
Story Review By
popped into this small eatery to see what it was
all about... and fell in love with it! We only had
two dishes but went head-over-heels for the
flavors of both and will be going back to explore
the rest of the menu with empty stomachs very
The first dish out of the kitchen was their
Grilled Pepper Chicken with Rice...
We expected a wok-fried dish but it came out
as more of a stew. This only made it more
appealing though, giving the chicken a softer
texture and more depth of flavor. If we had
known ahead of time, we would have gone with
the pancakes instead of rice.
Next up was the Spicy Beef Brisket Hui Mei...
Thick, chewy, tasty hand-pulled noodles...
With a mix of herbaceous greens and the
unexpected inclusion of seaweed, which was a
nice surprise. A winner of a dish!
as a bonus, they make their own hot chili oil,
which enhanced flavor just as much as it
lovingly burned. Outstanding!! I almost stole
the jar off the table...
Two fabulous plates of food and two bottles of
water, all for... $13! We'll be seeing
you soon, and often, Spicy Village!

Spider-Man 2 In Chinatown
By Margaret Eby / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Spider-man: Web-slinger, crime-fighter, and, in a pinch, point
guard. According to a witness, actor Andrew Garfield gave New York City
kids a thrill when he joined them for a quick game of hoops while
filming "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."
In a YouTube clip shot by an enthusiastic fan, a Garfield goofs around
on a Chinatown court wearing the trademark Spidey costume.
Affordable Shoe Repair In Chinatown
Chinatown Shoe Repair
New York, NY10002
Review by Carson Y. from
I was looking to replace my heel on my loafers and I
thought of checking out Chinatown, since it's inexpensive
and I got a referral to this hole in the wall by a friend,
and I'm glad I stumble upon here. It's literally a tiny
shed under the Manhattan Bridge. They have no address and
no actually store. It's a little open space next to a
stall #120. A mom and pop are working to repair anything
from shoes to zippers while patrons walk by and drop off
their shoes. It took about 30 mins to change both heels
and I asked them to repair a hole on the ball of the shoe.
It came it to $18 flat, and I was extremely happy with
their services and price. I will definitely go back!!
Visiting NYC? Where to Eat in Little Italy and Chinatown
Judging by the tour buses and grinning hawkers outside our Chinatown office doors, tourist season is back in full swing in New York, and if you're coming to town, we want to help.
Should you be visiting our Chinatown/Little Italy digs, hooray! You're coming to one of the most fun food neighborhoods in the city. But you need to know where to look and where to avoid. Visitors are often surprised when we tell them that Little Italy isn't an ethnic neighborhood anymore, that "real" New York Italians neither live there nor visit its eateries.* These days it's more or less home to schlocky restaurants and bakeries that thrive on dishing mediocre or downright bad food to out of towners, and gift shops trading in Sopranos quotes on cheap t-shirts.
* However, plenty of Italian tourists go, a phenomenon I'm still trying to explain.
But the neighborhood is still well worth a visit, both for the Little Italy institutions that are still awesome and for its proximity to Chinatown's many edible wonders. The two neighborhoods are so closely intertwined that it's easy to do them both in a day, especially with this guide in hand.
