Small Group Tour: Chinatown Crawl
I organized this event for 13 people, who were all coming in town for a team-building retreat. We took the water taxi from River North all the way to Chinatown, then walked five minutes to get bubble teas and smoothies at Joy Yee’s (I arranged the orders ahead of time so there was no waiting). We then walked over the Xi’an Cuisine for ground lamb and cumin buns, as well as homemade noodles stir-fried with bits of lamb. Our final stop: Phoenix on Archer Avenue, for a family-style feast including dumplings, vegetables, the off-menu “Toronto” fried rice and a few other surprises.
