Chowing Down in Chinatown

I’ve mentioned before that Chinatown always presents something of a challenge to me. It’s chock full of interesting food, but much of it is hidden among mediocrity, esoteric signs and thousands of people knocking into each other.
Still, sometimes i manage come across a yummy surprise like Malaysian jerky shops or egg tarts like i had in Hong Kong that make me want to keep going back to look for more.
Recently, a friend gave me the key to finding the hidden goodies to be found in the neighborhood. Craig Nelson, a friend and fellow food fan developed an app called Chinatown Chowdown, which works as a guide to the area’s best food.
It’s got listings and reviews and photos as well as a map that’ll tell you what’s closest to you and how much a cab would cost to get there.
Over the next couple weeks, i plan to try to make it do a little exploring with the app as my guide. I’ll be reporting in once a week or so with my finds.
